The Music Therapy Program at Hospice of Santa Cruz County serves patients and their families of Santa Cruz County who are on hospice services. We have offices in both Scotts Valley and Watsonville.

To be considered for this internship, the applicant:

  • Must have completed an undergrad and/or master's level AMTA approved Music Therapy program.
  • Must have proficient guitar skills, confident singing skills, pleasant singing voice, interest and excitement concerning self-exploration, interest to increase musical repertoire to fit population, and technological skills/interest to expand them

The intern should expect to observe the music therapist, the music therapy intern (MTI) and other disciplines in field visits in the first 3-4 weeks of internship, along with general orientation which includes Hospice Educational Network videos. The intern will begin to co-lead sessions with supervisor and present MTI, working towards autonomy to lead sessions independently. Throughout internship the intern will have weekly supervision with the internship director and be observed weekly by the internship director/supervisor. The intern will carry their own caseload, attend an Interdisciplinary Group (IDG) meeting bi-monthly, have the option of attending a monthly staff support group, and will be required to create an internship project specific to the population or incorporate internship experience data for their potential research/thesis project. Sessions will most likely be 1:1 visits and small family sessions with 2 group sessions/week at a facility as the availability allows. The internship is a 4 day/ 32 hour a week position.
