The VCU Strength and Conditioning Department offers internships for both undergraduate and graduate students. Potential interns do not need to be VCU students. Students from around the area are welcome to apply. During your internship experience at VCU you will gain practical experience developing VCU athletes. We take great pride in providing knowledge that students use well after their time at VCU. Whether your chosen profession is coaching, athletic training or physical therapy, you will be given the necessary tools to design and implement programs, correct technical flaws in weight lifting technique, motivate athletes and become time efficient. If you are interested in becoming part of the VCU Athletics Family, email Matt Slachetka at
