Program Description

The Psychology Internship Training Program will have available three (3) full-time positions for doctoral students during the 2019-2020 academic year. The training program abides by the scientist-practitioner training model and it is guided by a developmental, bio-psychosocial perspective. The Internship is a one-year (12-month), 2,000 hours, clinical and research program with interns matched nationally through the APPIC Internship Matching Program. Annual salary is estimated at $24,0003.00 plus benefits. The program is horizontally organized along several competencies. In addition, there are vertical competencies involving diversity and individual differences, professional development and research that cut across the various horizontal competencies. The program is horizontally structured through two clinical tracks (Adult/Pediatric), and it is divided into two, six-month blocks where interns perform two-three major rotations each. In addition, all interns select a research year-wide project or rotation, satisfying competency in this area. 

The Psychology Internship Training Program will select prospective interns who are doctoral students during the 2019-2020 academic year and are currently matriculated in APA-approved clinical, counseling or school psychology programs.  Applicants will be in good-standing, and will be cleared for internship training by the Director of Training of their respective doctoral clinical programs.
