AbstractThis proposal is for a full-time music therapist position at the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia. There is a wide range of physical/medical, psychosocial, and cognitive goals that need to be addressed for children in the hospital environment, to treat them most effectively and efficiently. Music therapy can achieve many of these goals in a significantly effective and long-lasting way. It is also a cost-effective way to achieve these goals. By establishing a positive rapport with the patient, family, and medical staff, the music therapist provides treatment aimed at the overall improvement and health of the children and their families. The full-time music therapist will work both individually and in group settings, utilizing a variety of techniques, instruments, and skills to address these goals. The addition of music therapy at this hospital will benefit the patients, families, staff, and overall hospital environment.

Music therapy in the NICU and pediatrics: a program proposal for Stony Brook Children’s HospitalBie, Alexandra (2019-05)I am proposing a music therapy program for the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and pediatric/adolescent medicine unit at the newly built children’s hospital, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, which will soon be open to the public, located on the Stony Brook University Hospital campus. I have witnessed the impact of music therapy enhance the lives of the young patients and their families at Stony Brook University Hospital throughout my internship on the pediatric unit. Currently, there is one board-certified music therapist in the hospital who predominantly works in adult psychiatry. It would be beneficial to hire a music therapist or eventually, a team of music therapists, to work specifically in pediatrics and the NICU. Fortunately, during my internship, I was trained to work with hospitalized children through guidance of the child life specialists, as well as with the infants in the NICU. As it stands, in a 603 bed hospital it is impossible for one music therapist to provide care to all of the patients and their families who might benefit. With the addition of a pediatric hospital to the Stony Brook University Hospital campus, it is essential that a music therapist, or music therapists, are hired to work specifically with the pediatric population.
