PLT Internship Description

When you started your SMCPLT curriculum you knew very little about PLT and stress management.  Now, after all your coursework, you are ready to integrate the academics into a presentation that demonstrates your competency in this field. 

Whether it’s in education or clinical practice, this internship showcases your competence in this field. 

  • Each career path gives you a strong foundation for market opportunities as a PLT practitioner or a PLT trainer.  

You'll co-design your internship with an SMCPLT course instructor/mentor and clearly outline your project objectives and a timeline for completion with 2-3 one-on-one mentoring conversations.  

Internship Projects:

  • Develop and present an evidence-based report on a PLT topic of interest: athletic performance, pain reduction, brain health, skin care, etc.
  • Write up and present a case study on a client, their health challenges (or goals) and the PLT application.
  • Develop and present an education module for professional or public audience. 

You'll  have SMCPLT certified instructor support!
