Examples of internship sites include: college and universities, hospitals, retirement communities, fitness centers, and employee wellness organizations.

UNCG provides a wide range of internship types such as: athletic training, strength and conditioning, personal training, physical and occupational therapy, and cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation.

Goals
