AMTA Internship Supervision E-course, a self-study e-course designed to provide information to anyone interested in learning more about the music therapy internship process, and to provide training for board certified music therapists interested in supervising music therapy students in AMTA internship programs. Successful completion of this e-course also provides 5 CMTE credits approved by CBMT, and fulfills the requirement for internship supervision training for National Roster Internship Directors. The instructors for this AMTA E-course are members or former members of AMTA’s Association Internship Approval Committee (AIAC), teaching the curriculum they developed for internship supervision training required for National Roster Internship Directors. Clinical internship, a degree requirement for the bachelor’s degree in music therapy, is a capstone experience requiring music therapy students to apply the clinical skills they learned in the classroom. The clinical internship has been an important part of music therapy education since the early years of the profession. Music therapists who are intern supervisors and their places of employment which host the internship opportunities provide a very valuable service to the profession of music therapy by training students, an important step toward a long and rewarding professional career in music therapy. Whether you are just interested in learning more about the internship process, or are beginning to explore the possibility of becoming an intern supervisor, or are completing your National Roster Internship Application by taking this e-course as training required for becoming a music therapy intern supervisor, we extend our best wishes to you.
