Occupational Therapy Internship at CHOP

The Occupational Therapy Department at CHOP offers an exciting and challenging internship for prospective Level I and Level II interns. We support AOTA's effort in preparing interns for a successful and rewarding career in working with children and adolescents, of varying diagnostic profiles and cultural backgrounds, to reach their fullest functional potential. Please note that only students who are currently attending an Occupational Therapy (OT) program through a university that is contracted with CHOP may be considered for an internship. For those that are interested in pursuing a career in OT we recommend that you contact a university with an accredited OT program.
