The NIH Clinical Center is truly one of the most exciting places in the world for a recreation therapy intern. Patients here are all volunteer research participants. They are here because they fit a research study's requirements. The most common patient groups include Adult oncology, rare diseases, Pediatrics, behavioral Health, and alcoholism. 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.
