Our internship program is designed to expose students to potential career tracks in fitness, medical fitness, and other related paths. In addition to being a part of the day-to-day operations of a medically-based fitness facility, you’ll also have a chance to observe other areas that can only be seen in a hospital setting. Examples include cardiac rehabilitation, physical therapy, bariatrics, fitness for oncology patients, corporate health screenings and more.
