Child Life Specialists help children cope with the stress and anxiety that often accompanies a hospital experience.
You might spot us in many different places throughout the hospital system, including the Children's Emergency Department, the Pediatric Unit, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Day Surgery.
Each child life specialist has a bachelor's degree in child life, child development, recreational therapy, or related field. After completing 480 hours of paid work or internship under the supervision of a certified child life specialist, they must pass a Child Life Council board examination to be certified.
