Child Life Program
Children's Medical Center Healthcare Organization

The Child Life Program at Children's Medical is one of the largest in the nation.  Child Life specialists are bachelor's and/or master's degreed child development professionals who work extensively with patients and families to help them cope with illness, injury, and medical procedures.  They present age-appropriate information about medical events and procedures, facilitate play experiences, and establish supportive relationships with children, parents, and siblings.  Their primary goal is to minimize the impact of illness on a child's normal growth and development.
