All applications are carefully reviewed and applicants will be notified by email of their interview status by December 15. There are four interview days in January, held in Chapel Hill. The tentative dates are January 7, 8, 16 and 17, 2020.
The interview day includes group discussions with the faculty to learn about the internship, individual interviews with faculty members in the tracks of interest to the applicant, visits to our main site at the UNC Medical Center and to some off-campus sites, and opportunities for discussion with our current interns over lunch and/or afternoon coffee. Applicants to the Clinical Forensic track will spend an additional day in interviews at the Federal Correctional Complex in Butner, NC, and have additional screening requirements.
On-site interviews are preferred. However, we understand that this may not be possible for all applicants and upon request, will conduct telephone interviews for all tracks except the Clinical Forensic track. Also note that applicants for the Clinical Forensic track must have lived in the United States for 3 of the 5 years prior to the internship year, and must be US citizens.

Our intern positions for 2020-2021 include Behavioral Medicine (with a focus on transplant), Clinical Forensic (2 positions), Clinical Child-Pediatric, TEACCH, CIDD, Clinical Child-Community, and Women's Mental Health.
Placements sites include multiple clinical programs within the UNC hospitals and outpatient clinics, as well as other community, state, and federal programs in the Triangle region. Please see our Brochure for details about the various tracks as well as our training opportunties.
