Do part-time internships exist? 30-hour weeks for 6 months v. 60-hour weeks for 3 months

I'm a fan of hands-on, project-based learning and those in education like Alfie Kohn, John Dewey and Jean Piaget.  I'm wondering if there's a way to study for the CPA exam using such techniques as I absorb information so much better by experiencing it than learning it in textbook study sessions.

I noticed in my score report today that in every area that I was stronger in were those in which I had previous work experience (and tangible understanding).  I know exactly where to focus using to be sure to pass the next go round.

I dream about having an accounting internship at a consulting firm that is part-time so that I can pursue my career goals and professional aspirations while meeting my personal responsibilities.

Are there firms that could benefit from a competent professional for 30-hour weeks (i.e. 6-hour shifts Monday through Friday for 6 months instead of 12-hour days for 3 months)?  From an operational standpoint would this be beneficial to the business cycles in place?

I'm curious if anyone else in the CPA exam process knows if such opportunities exist as junior accountants or "returnships" as opposed to internships?  Feel free to post your professional experience or thoughts.
