Real World Experience
Our Public Intern Clinic is open to members of the public, which allows students to learn and improve practical skills while helping people who have a real need for Massage Therapy.
CCMH is committed to helping to improve individuals in our community. Our Outreach and In-reach programs offer opportunities for treating community members who may have certain ailments or disabilities, and allow students experience in providing hands-on healing. In addition to a weekly Clinic shift, students must complete, at minimum, (i) 30 hours of Outreach/In-reach clinical practicum; and (ii) 64 hours of hospital placement. All clinical experiences are organized by CCMH staff and supervised by Registered Massage Therapists to ensure a meaningful learning experience. To find our more about our Clinical Practicum component please go to Clinical Practicum Program.
Our Massage Therapy program builds a strong understanding of the human body through competency based instruction, with hands-on learning, including over 330 hours of practical clinical training. Upon graduation, our students have attained the knowledge, skill and ability necessary to be successful healthcare practitioners.
