We conduct interviews between early December and mid-January. Tentative dates are 12/11/2020 and 1/8/2021. All applicants chosen for interviews are notified by Dec. 15, per APPIC rules. We interview with the following schedule: morning orientation, individual interviews with faculty members, meet with current interns without faculty present, and a Q & A/wrap-up session.
We try to match the applicant with a faculty interviewer who supervises a rotation aligned with the applicant's interests, depending on schedules and circumstances. Interviews can be conducted by telephone, if necessary, and this involves speaking to two different faculty members and the training director.
Applicants likely to be granted an interview would have a combination of intervention, assessment, and supervision totaling at least 1,000 hours. We prefer to see at least 100 hours of assessment, but will consider applicants with fewer hours, depending on the strength of the rest of the application.
The training director personally calls applicants to invite them to interview.
Our site does not use standardized case studies during the interview process.
We update our internship brochure before Sept. 1 of each year, so please refer to that document for more information. Please do not hesitate to e-mail Dr. Phillips if you have questions.
