The Transition from Student To Practitioner
Internship marks the transition from Ayurveda student to Ayurvedic practitioner. This is the most important time in a student’s learning experience. A quality experience during your internship makes the transition into the world as a practitioner much easier and more successful.
Ayurvedic Health Counselor (AHC2) & Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist (CAS2) Internships
CCA offers two internship programs. Each internship is six months in duration.
CCA’s internship programs are true internships where students are working with members of the local community and learning the skills necessary to become successful in practice. Unlike many other programs, they are not simply observation nor seeing only friends and family. Internships include classes as well as time spent with patients.
