The purpose of the internship for the Rehabilitation Services major is to provide the senior level student with on-site experience in a community agency involved in some phase of the rehabilitation process. The internship is usually completed in the final semester of the student's senior year. A student must be a Rehabilitation Services major, have an overall GPA in the major of 2.5, have consent of the instructor, and have passed ADRE 3010 and ADRE 4000 with a C or better grade prior to registering for the internship.
Each student in the Rehabilitation Services program is required to have malpractice insurance. The insurance plan covers the student for a period of one year beginning in August of each year. If payment is required that is not covered by your student fees, notification of the due date will be sent to your ECU email account during the summer.
A required pre-internship meeting is held once each fall and spring semester near the beginning of the semester. Students must attend this meeting the semester prior to their internship and are encouraged to attend the meeting earlier should their schedules allow. Students are notified of this meeting via an email from the Administrative Assistant. The preinternship meeting will answer students' questions about internship.
The Rehabilitation Services Student Manual located under Student Manual provides additional details regarding the internship. A Directory of Field Sites for Practicum and Internship is located under Student Resources.
