We are devoted to teaching new professionals through our extensive internship and practicum placements. We are accredited through the American Music Therapy Association (link is highlighted to access the A.M.T.A.’s website). If you are interested in pursuing an internship with OPG, please review the requirements (link is highlighted to access requirements).

The internship will be primarily made up of one-on-one sessions with a possibility of up to four group sessions per week. An OPG music therapist will be in the room during every Medicaid waiver session led by the intern. In addition to sessions, the intern will be responsible for session plans, quarterly/annual paperwork, a research paper on a topic of their interest and a legacy project of their choosing.
