The Media Programs department of CHOP is currently accepting applications for the following internship opportunities.
This department encompasses all of CHOP’s Child Life initiatives with multimedia, including:
The Voice, which launched July 2011, regularly hosts celebrity guests and produces a hours of live radio-on-tv programming each week. Some guests recently appearing in the studio were Miranda Cosgrove, Selena Gomez, Cee Lo Green, Hot Chelle Rae, and Keri Hilson.
The goal of all media programs is to provide programming that is interactive, educational, entertaining and therapeutic for patients. Many of the live broadcasts include opportunities for patient participation either in-studio or through bedside call-in.
Child Life aims to provide a sense of normalcy, community and distraction for all children, some of which have considerably long hospital stays and critical illnesses.
All applicants should be comfortable with both this environment and in working with children. Our internships provide students with an opportunity to have hands-on work with all facets of media production, including DJ-ing radio shows, conducting guest interviews, creating show content and designing graphics and animations — all while truly making a difference in the children’s lives.
* There will be some flexibility in accommodating school calendars, vacations and varying shift combinations, however interns should plan on being sufficiently available at the beginning and end of terms for incoming and outgoing training.
