|Interview process description:
To be considered for interview, WKPIC requires 3 letters of reference, 2 of which must be from clinical supervisors. No supplemental materials required.
Interviews will be exclusively virtual for the 2021-2022 internship year. They will be focused on a matrix of skills, but it also behavioral in nature, allowing interns to discuss how they have approached training and clinical issues in the past, with 3-5 interviewers who actively supervise and educate interns in the program. Virtual tours of the training site will be provided on our website, and prospective interns will have unsupervised access to current interns by email, telephone, and virtual meetings if desired. Interviews typically take place at staggered times on the scheduled day, with prospective interns having some input into the times that work best for them. Each interview slot is around 60 minutes in duration. We are still working to adapt our current interview model to a fully virtual model, so some details may shift. At this time, we plan to use Zoom as a primary platform, and to have interns meet virtually with two separate teams of interviewers. Time will be provided for question/answer, and interns will be available virtually for private virtual meetings as well.
Interview date is tentatively scheduled for January 15, 2021, with a secondary date of January 22 depending upon the number of prospective interns who wish to participate. Make-up dates may be available on a case by case basis.
Please note: For the duration of the pandemic national state of emergency, we recognize that students may have difficulty compiling practicum hours. While our stated hours are preferred, we will not discard applications where potential interns or training directors note a lack of local opportunity to obtain hours. Each applicant who has not been able to meet the hours will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
