I am completing my internship with the Child Life department at WakeMed Children’s Hospital in Raleigh, NC. I found my internship through multiple former Auburn students that also completed their internship at this site. I will be doing rotations in Day Surgery, Children’s Emergency Department, and Pediatrics under the supervision of multiple certified child life specialists. This is an important part of my education because it will teach me how to work independently as a child life specialist, as well as allow me to work with multiple populations of patients and families.
