Internship Program Admissions

Briefly describe in narrative form important information to assist potential applicants in assessing their likely fit with your program. This description must be consistent with the program’s policies on intern selection and practicum and academic preparation requirements:

The internship program is anchored by a scientist-practitioner model and provides training experiences with clinically and socio-demographically diverse populations across the lifespan in a range of clinical settings. Along with an emphasis on theory, science, and practice elements of individual level clinical work, the internship training experience also includes a focus on systems level assessment and intervention encompassing the activities of psychologists that pertain to advocacy, social change, and social justice, particularly as this relates to work with diverse clinically under-served populations.  The General Internship Experience (general and trauma tracks) accepts applicants from APA or CPA accredited clinical and counseling psychology programs. The Neuropsychology Track also accepts applicants from APA or CPA accredited clinical and counseling psychology programs that include coursework in neuropsychology. Applicants to all tracks must also have completed a minimum of 3 years of pre-internship graduate training at the time of application for internship.
