The NIH Clinical Center is truly one of the most exciting places in the world for a recreation therapy intern. it is research hospital and includes a variety of patient populations including adults and pediatrics. Patients here are all volunteer research participants. They are here because they fit a research study's requirements. Patient groups include but are not limited to oncology, behavioral health, and physical medicine and rehab. Although it is expected that students will have had some face-to-face contact with the general patient groups they express an interest in working with, the internship experience also encourage students to seek contact with a variety of patient populations and age groups in order to improve their professional marketability. Explore the NIH - Recreation therapy website for more information.
