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.
