Practicums at The Alex

The Alex works with accredited institutions to provide students in a variety of fields including social work, nursing, child & youth care studies, medical office administration, and other areas related to the organization’s work, an opportunity to gain valuable front line experience. The Alex is committed to being a learning organization, enhancing the programs offered at our local post-secondary institutions, augmenting the students’ professional career, and contributing to the specialized training of soon-to-be professionals. The Alex also benefits tremendously from having students within our organization who offer a fresh perspective to the great work we do.

**Please note: at this time, we cannot accommodate a practicum where a Registered Psychologist or a Masters in Social Work is required to supervise/precept**

We thank all applicants for their interest, however only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
