Externships Overview

In addition to the high level of expert training students receive at our facility, we at CIHS are deeply committed to providing our students with amazing opportunities outside our walls, helping them jumpstart their careers and enabling them to truly make an impact in their chosen field. With our advanced externship program, CIHS students will have the chance to actively partner with some of the most reputable and well established organizations in the healthcare industry and beyond.


U of M Medical school

CIHS is excited to be partnering with the U of M Medical School as part of our externship program. Our students will provide on location table and chair massage services at the U of M campus for faculty, students, and interns, which will count toward their clinical hours.


Crescent Cove

We are also partnering with Crescent Cove, a hospice house for terminally ill children, where students interested in this area will have an opportunity to shadow Board Certified Massage Therapists as they care for sick kids.


City of Saint Paul

CIHS has secured contracts for chair massage with the City of Saint Paul, as well as with local businesses and other events, where our students will be able to perfect their chair massage skills in the government buildings downtown, as well as other offsite venues.
