Visitor Restrictions Update: Because flu & RSV cases are on the rise, starting November 16, children 12 and younger are restricted from visiting hospitals, certain inpatient facilities, and all emergency departments. Learn more.

Thank you for your interest in the Child Life Information Session at Levine Children’s Hospital. The program is for individuals, 16 and older, to learn more about a certified Child Life specialist in a healthcare setting. The goal of our program is to educate as many people as possible about the unique way Child Life services can impact the pediatric population and to ignite a passion in students for a possible career in the field. 

We welcome students looking for an introduction to Child Life, community members wanting to gain a better perspective on services offered, as well as individuals looking for a potential career change.

 In the Child Life information session, the applicant will receive a tour of the hospital and hear a presentation from a Certified Child Life Specialist about what the career entails.  The applicant will also have a brief time to ask questions in regards to the career field. The class is offered one time a month, on a Tuesday or Thursday with different hours to accommodate different schedules.

Due to high patient needs during the holiday season, we do not provide the Child Life Information Session in November or December.

This program is for observation and information only and cannot be used to satisfy or replace practicum or hands-on hours for coursework.
