Vilavi offers stimulating internships where students can gain work experience. These internships expose students to the clinical practices implemented in the addiction treatment center. Students actively participate in the interventions; they are in direct contact with the residents. A series of internal trainings and meetings help to consolidate professional skills.

Supervision and Evaluation: The internship provides supervision and evaluation in order to offer the trainee the best means to carry out his / her work. Intern opinion will be taken into consideration and she/he will be actively involved in the decisions regarding her/his plan.
