Child Life Internship

Child Life Internship


All applicants are required to be affiliated with a university for liability purposes as well as to scaffold the learning from the internship. An affiliation agreement between MSK and your institution must be obtained before the start of the internship. We accept one intern every spring and fall semester. MSK offers a full time 600-hour internship during which interns will experience at least 2 rotations with separate child life rotation supervisors. Interns will also have an opportunity to follow all the child life specialists in most areas of the center to ensure a comprehensive learning experience. 

We adhere to the offer deadlines suggested by the Association for Child Life Professionals, use the Internship Readiness Common Application and require the following: 

  • Completed Internship Readiness Common Application which can be located at    
  • Current resume 

Completed applications can only be submitted electronically via email to [email protected]
