Practicum students usually work Sunday through Wednesday or Wednesday through Saturday.
Schedules may be 8:30 - 5:00 or 11:30 - 8:00, and may vary throughout the week.
The Division of Child Life and Integrative Care has responsibility for patient care 365 days a year with morning, afternoon and evening programs. As a result, schedules and assignment locations of practicum students at Cincinnati Children's will vary. Most practicum activities will take place at the main campus on Burnet Ave., but there may be outings to Liberty Campus, College Hill Psychiatric campus, or to spend several hours in a camp setting.
Each student will be individually assigned to observe/participate with specific child life specialists in their areas of expertise in the outpatient and inpatient settings. Practicum students will attend seminars together in order to promote group interaction and reflective learning. Written assignments will be completed individually and submitted to the program coordinator for review. Sunday and Saturday work will be primarily focused on group dynamics and learning to manage programs in activity centers.
Through completion of assignments, Practicum students will achieve these goals / objectives.
