Capernaum has long partnered with a variety of universities across the nation as a commitment to the pediatric education of OT, PT, and SLP students, as well as to the learning of the most up-to-date knowledge by Capernaum's staff. Students challenge us to clarify and justify our therapeutic approaches and treatment plans according to evidence-based practice. Our wide variety of sites enrich the student's experience. Capernaum's Clinical Instructors have historically received extremely high feedback from our interns, who bring a spark of vitality that is always appreciated!
POSITIONS FOR 2017 HAVE BEEN FILLED. Future applications should be made to Kristin Barstad at KristinB@capernaumpeds.com.
Capernaum welcomes you to volunteer at our many service sites or in our specialized groups! We offer a variety of experiences to assist students 17 years and up in exploring careers in physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy. We offer therapy to children age birth to 21 years.
Our volunteers are expected to do 50% observation of therapy sessions and 50% administrative tasks. Volunteering may not be limited to just the career path in which you are interested but may include opportunities across all therapy disciplines, or in our specialized groups. Groups may meet throughout the year and may include social skills, handwriting groups, and adapted dance classes. For more information about our therapy or specialized groups, click on the Therapy Services or Specialized Programs tabs.
The time commitment from our volunteers will be agreed upon during the initial meeting. Our volunteers represent Capernaum Pediatric Therapy, Inc.; therefore, they are subject to all of our policies including confidentiality, infection control, background checks, and dress code.
If you are interested in sharing your caring spirit, get in on the FUN by contacting Kristin Barstad at KristinB@capernaumpeds.com. Many of our wonderful employees were former volunteers!!
