OSH-PIP offers 3 fulltime internship positions covering a range of clinical and didactic experiences that represent the necessary depth and breadth required for the future professional practice of psychology. OSH-PIP is based in the Practitioner-Scholar model, training clinical psychologists who are effective consumers of research and who utilize scholarly inquiry to inform their practice.
In each program and across the training year, the interns rotate through 2, 6-month major and 2, 6-month minor rotations (listed below). Interns spend approximately three and one half days (or about 24 hours) per week in a major rotation and approximately one day per week (or about 8 hours) in a minor rotation with the remaining time spent in other training activities. Interns complete an average of 10-20 hours per week of direct service delivery. Of note, OSH-PIP previously offered two distinct tracks, a "Treatment" track and a "Forensic Evaluation" track; we are no longer offering these distinct tracks and each matched intern can pick from all available rotation options.
Interns select rotations based on their interests, needs, and career goals. Each rotation has specific requirements and expectations. During OSH-PIP orientation, the interns will meet with the Training Directors, identify their preferred rotations, create their first rotation schedule, and plan their second rotation schedule. Every effort will be made to accommodate intern preferences regarding rotation selection and sequence, though preference cannot be guaranteed.
Major or Minor: Competency Restoration Program (does not involve conducting court-ordered forensic evaluations), Forensic Evaluation Service (working with a licensed psychologist and Certified Forensic Evaluator completing court-ordered forensic evaluations), and Guilty Except for Insanity (GEI) Program.
