The Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System offers Child Life Internships to individuals who meet internship criteria. Criteria include applications to the program, personal recommendations and review of an official transcript. We encourage students to have completed a Medical Terminology and Anatomy and Physiology Course prior to internship. A personal interview is also required for consideration as an intern.
The Responsibilities of the Program include:
The primary areas covered by Child Life include Infant, Toddler and Preschool Inpatient Unit, School Age/Adolescent Inpatient Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic, Outpatient Pediatric Clinic, Outpatient Surgery, Children’s Emergency Center, and diagnostic areas. Child Life Interns become members of the health care team, working towards comprehensive care and are expected to uphold the policies of GHS.
We will not be offering an internship during Summer 2014. We will be offering practicum experiences during this semester. For more information about our practicum, click here. Click here, for Practicum Application.

Please note: The Child Life Certifying Committee is currently working to improve the exam application process. This will involve the suspension of the Course Work Review service as of April 30, 2014, and the introduction of a new service called the Eligibility Assessment, which is expected to become available in mid-July 2014. Please make sure you have requested your course work review to be done before the April 30th deadline so that you will have it to include in your application packet.
