About Animal-Assisted Interventions in
Healthcare Initiative

The Brooks College of Health Animal-Assisted Interventions (AAI) in Healthcare Initiative has a primary mission to increase community-wide patient and student access to high-quality Animal-Assisted Intervention services including Animal-Assisted Activities (AAA), Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT), and Animal Assisted Education (AAE).  We accomplish this mission primarily through providing supervised experiential learning opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students in healthcare, psychology, and social work disciplines via practicums, internships, and externships with local non-profit educational and healthcare organizations as well as through services to UNF students and faculty.
