Interviews will be scheduled between 1/3/20 - 1/24/20 and are expected to be in person. If an applicant is unable to make it to our site due to uncontrollable circumstances (e.g., a cancelled flight), a phone interview may be substituted. The interview day typically begins at 8:00am and concludes by 2 pm after a tour of the facility. Interviewees are interviewed individually and will have three formal interviews ( 2 with staff members, 1 with the training director). Interviewees will also have the opportunity to meet informally with some of the current interns. Additional information about interviews can be found on our website by clicking the "Interview Information" link.
Our primary goal is to ready graduates for entry-level psychology practice who are professionally well-rounded and knowledgeable in a broad range of psychological skills. This goal includes proficiency in psychological assessment, diagnosis, treatment and consultation. In addition, our goal is to promote the integration of psychological science and theory with psychological practice and encourage understanding of individual diversity as it interfaces practice. Our program is learning and training based, as opposed to production based. Service delivery is subsumed under the training needs and interests of our interns. Interns determine to good measure their rotations, focusing on their training needs and interests. Intensive supervision and education are program priorities. We prefer applicants from scientist-practitioner academic programs.
For the 2020-2021 training year Hines will have 6 General Track interns and 1 Specialty Track intern (Neuropsychology). Please see our brochure on our website for the 2019-2020 brochure. PLEASE NOTE the updated brochure will not be available until Mid September 2019. Althoug we do not foresee any major changes to the structure of the program, Please check back at that time as there could be changes in the availability of our rotations.
