Educational Opportunities in Music Therapy

Music Therapy Practicums

The Music Therapy department at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh offers practicum experiences for fall and spring semesters.

Time slots are in most cases Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The time slot may change, as our music therapists have changing schedules based on the time of year.

We fill practicum slots on a first come, first serve basis.
