It is recommended that students first visit the BYU-Idaho Internships webpage to become familiar with the requirements and then seek internships through networking activities.

Internship Overview

Internships are designed to give students experience in the area of Exercise Physiology and related fields. 

Internships must be related to the major coursework. Dental internships do not count.

Students with  catalogue years of 2016-2017 or later must complete a 2-credit internship consisting of at least 200 hours.  

Students are responsible for finding their own internships. The career services office is a helpful resource to identify previously approved student internships for Exercise Physiology majors.
