Therapeutic Recreation Internship

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children offers a therapeutic recreation internship to students studying therapeutic recreation and/or taking classes in order to become a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS).

Our therapeutic recreation internship is a 15-week non-paid program to help prepare students for an entry-level position in therapeutic recreation. Interns work 40 hours per week and have the opportunity to work with inpatients and outpatients, as well as assist with community outreach programs. Our internship builds on what is learned in the classroom to prepare the student for success in whatever setting they choose to practice therapeutic recreation.

Our internship prepares students for the National Council on Therapeutic Recreation Certification exam, which each student must pass in order to become a CTRS.

Interns must complete the application process and schedule an interview. For more information, please contact Dana R. Dempsey, MS, CTRS, at 214-559-7615 or 
800-421-1121, ext. 7615 or e-mail dana.dempsey@tsrh.org.
