Applicants declining an invitation to interview will not be ranked by the program. Interviews are expected to occur on four consecutive dates from Monday 1/09/23 through Thursday 1/12/23. In accordance with APPIC guidelines we plan to offer virtual interviews only. On the day of interviews, applicants will receive an overview of the training program from the Director of Training and select members of the training staff, spend time with the current intern class, and participate in several individual, 30-minute interviews with members of the training staff. Applicants are not guaranteed to interview with any particular staff member and requests are not accepted.
The psychology doctoral internship program at the Atlanta VA promotes the development of generalist skills across the profession-wide competency areas defined by APA. These competencies include research, ethical and legal standards, individual and cultural diversity, professional values, attitudes, and behaviors, assessment, intervention, fundamental supervision skills, and consultation and interprofessional/interdisciplinary skills. Emphasis is placed on learning the most current philosophical and technical approaches backed by empirical research and current professional standards. All training rotations provide ample opportunities for supervised direct clinical experience. All supervisors provide individualized evaluation and feedback on clinical skills and the intern's professional growth as it occurs within a clinical setting.
