Interview process description:

Interviews are by invitation only and are typically held from 8 am - 3:30 pm. Interviews normally occur between December 3 and February 1 with no interviews over the Christmas Holidays. See the bottom of the Application information page on our website for specific dates for possible interviews. Each applicant has a program orientation by the Director of Training and they meet individually with faculty in the applicant's primary area of interest (i.e. Pediatrics, Neuropsychology, Adult (VAMC)).  Applicants then have group meetings with faculty in their non-preferred or non-emphasis areas (ex. Adult candidates meet with Pediatric and Neuropsychology faculty as a small group). Applicants have lunch with the current interns which usually includes a walking tour of the HSC campus. All interviews are normally about 30 minutes in length. Interviews are scheduled specifically to meet the intern's interest area in our program. Requests to meet with specific faculty are welcome and will be honored as schedules allow.

Program Description

We believe the internship should be devoted primarily to clinical activities, however, science provides the basis for much of our clinical practice. The core of the intern's training is in the clinical activities on rotations and each intern will be active in a wide range of clinical activities. Our program is a General Internship, and as such, interns gain assessment experience working with adults and children. Interns have experiences in psychotherapy and assessment. Our major goal is to prepare students for the practice of professional psychology, particularly clinical and counseling psychology. Other goals include learning high standards of ethical practice and sensitivity to cultural and individual difference. Choices an intern makes allow for specialized training in either clinical neuropsychology, pediatric and clinical child psychology or adult psychology while maintaining a general internship philosophy. Each intern has approximately 21 possible rotation choices. There are approximately 65 full time and 3 part time faculty & 9 interns. We have 3 major rotations of 4 months duration, each of which involves 24 hours of clinical work each week and 3 minor rotations which involve 12 hours of clinical activity each week. We have 4 internship wide didactics and many specific rotation didactics which meet each week. Interns receive a minimum of 3 hours of regularly scheduled, face-to-face individual supervision. Our program is devoted to educating interns, and faculty value their teaching and supervision activities. We are a consortium which has 2 institutions comprising the OU Medical Center, both located on the Unvicersity of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center campus.
