Exercise Physiologist Internship
As an Exercise Physiologist Intern at Beyond Therapy®, you will assist in assessing the physical fitness of patients, who have a spinal cord injury (SCI), acquired brain injury (ABI), and/or other acute and chronic conditions, including wellness members, to determine current strength and endurance, and devise individualized exercise programs tailored to meet needs of specific goals.
Responsibilities will include:
Spring Semester (January – April): The application deadline is October 15, and confirmations will be sent out by November 1.
Summer Semester (May - August): The application deadline is March 15, and confirmations will be sent out by April 1.
Fall Semester (September – December): The application deadline is July 15, and confirmations will be sent out by August 1.
NOTE: Because universities have varying requirements for the length of an internship, semester months are approximate; however, deadline dates are firm. A student contract with your school is required. Once we have reviewed all the applicants, you may be asked to come in for a formal interview and/or complete a phone interview.
Beyond Therapy is unable to provide housing or any form of compensation during the internship. Students will be required to secure housing prior to starting an internship if they are not able to commute from their current residence.
