The ASP Internship is a formal internship that aims at developing allied health professionals by providing them with a wide battery of tools for evaluation, integration and effective utilization – all with the goal of personalizing solutions to produce consistent RESULTS with clients. 

Interns will be educated though 6 modules, each with a practical component, allowing them to practice and apply the theories, as well as giving them a in-depth view of how our coaches analyse, think and operate at ASP.

We offer 2 streams for the internship: A 6-day intensive and a 6-week placement. Both will occur exclusively from our flagship centre in Melbourne, totalling 48 hours of structed syllabus in theory and practical. 

Introducing the Intensive and Placement streams:

  • The 6-Day Intensive:
    • Introduces Interns to the 6 modules over this exclusive period. This is primarily designed for interns who are time limited or travelling from out of town.
    • The Intensive will require a full time commitment of  8 hours a day (8:30am– 5:30pm) over 6 days.
  • The 6-Week Placement :
    • This system allows the modules to be taught over twelve 4-hour sessions (2 days a week for 6 weeks), giving interns more time to absorb the information, more opportunity for shadowing and see just how our ASP coaches apply it to clients.
