Three (3) on-site interview dates will be offered to invited internship candidates, including two interview dates in December (December 10 and 11, 2019) -- plus one in January (January 22, 2020). (Note: We will make every effort to accommodate candidates' interview date preferences; and, we strongly encourage December interviews for those candidates who might be able to visit NC on one of the December dates.)
Three interview dates (mentioned above) will be offered to invited candidates. On-site interviews are preferred, if feasible for candidates, and will include the following: group meetings with rotation supervisors; 3 individual interviews with faculty; plus, both group and one individual meeting with current (2019-2020) interns. When feasible, we believe that on-site interviews are preferable, because they provide candidates with much more information about our program. However, phone interviews may be arranged as an alternative, because our program does not wish to exclude candidates for reasons related to financial factors.
(Note: Requests to meet with specific rotation supervisors will be accommodated, to the extent possible. But, interview dates with larger numbers of candidates may make specific supervisor interviews impracticable.)

The updated brochure for 2020-2021 will be uploaded, a.s.a.p. Relatively few changes to the internship will be described, but note that U.S. citizens from Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) accredited graduate (Ph.D.) programs in clinical or counseling psychology are now eligible. That is, doctoral students from APA- or CPA-accredited programs are encouraged to apply. Additionally, students from clinical science -- Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS) accredited -- programs are also encouraged to apply.
