Pediatric Healthcare Internship Program

Applications are now open for our Pediatric Healthcare Internship Program in Cape Town!

The 4-week program is open to allied health professions students as well as to those interested in the field and is led by experienced, certified specialists.

Connect-123’s Pediatric Healthcare Internship Program offers allied health professions students a rare opportunity to participate in an immersive internship experience abroad.

The program is designed to meet the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs requirements and allows students from diverse disciplines and backgrounds the opportunity to contribute and learn in various pediatric settings, including hospitals, schools for children with disabilities, hospice care, adaptive sports, music therapy, and animal-assisted therapy.

Taking children’s developmental and cultural needs into consideration, internship participants increase their knowledge and skills surrounding best practices, trauma-informed care for the pediatric population, and interdisciplinary collaboration, while helping children cope with the challenges of hospitalization, illness, and disability.

Supervised onsite by qualified pediatric healthcare professionals, complementing the internship experience, the program offers weekly workshops on themes such as cultural humility, trauma-informed care, and the unique culture and healthcare system of South Africa.

The $4,150 program fee covers training, secure housing, 24/7 on-the-ground support, and some local events with the Connect-123 Cape Town team.  We also offer an optional overnight safari experience, where you can see Africa’s big five!
