Child and Youth Counsellor Student Practicum Process

Placement Process Instructions: 

1. Our preference is that  Practicum Coordinators for each college/university will send SickKids CYC Practicum Coordinator (Denise Halliday) the cover letters and resumes of all students who are interested and appropriate for placements at SickKids. Students may not  specify interest in particular program of interest in their cover letter.

2. Students are required to be going into their final year placement.

3. SickKids team will review resumes and contact students that meet requirements for an interview. Only successful applicants will be contacted.

4. Successful candidates must come prepared to the interview with two professional references and one therapeutic coping skills activity planned for presentation.

5. SickKids will ensure interviews are done and successful applicants are notified at least 1.5 months prior to placement start date.

6. Students will be required to provide a current vulnerable sector check, current TB test, proof of immunization and membership to the OACYC.

7. Forward resumes to:
