Thank you for your interest in the internship program through our Recreational Therapy Department. One intern will be selected for the fall and spring internship program, at each participating site. Summer internships are only available at the Toms River site. The internship program averages 40 hours per week, for 14 weeks.

Housing is available for students who live outside a one-hour commute to the hospital. The house is located across the street from our Mountainside facility, and 18 miles from New Brunswick. A housing contract will be sent to the student upon acceptance. Please note, students are expected to provide their own transportation
 

Recreational Therapy practicum experiences are available in our Community Recreation Program only (primarily Mountainside location). If accepted, students are expected to complete their practicum over the course of a minimum 7 week period.
