USU CAPS doctoral internship in Health Service Psychology provides quality training focused on eight basic areas of psychological practice important in a university counseling center or similar setting: individual therapy; group therapy; psycho-educational and psychological assessment; outreach and consultation activities; providing clinical supervision; awareness of and responsiveness to diversity issues; ethical and professional behavior; and professional development. While interns at CAPS are expected to function semi-autonomously, they can also expect to work and learn in an atmosphere characterized by respect and support. Overall, the goal of our internship is to create mentoring relationships and a learning environment in which interns can hone their skills and grow professionally in a safe and supervised setting. We respect the dignity, diversity, and individuality of all. This drives our effort to develop an inclusive multicultural community in which differences are respected and valued.
In addition to a number of required core experiences, our training allows an intern flexibility in choosing elective experiences consistent with their professional goals. Through the outreach consultation and professional development projects, interns have the opportunity to customize their internship. Coordinating these two projects, an intern can create a specialty rotation or focal area. Please see our webpage at https://www.usu.edu/aggiewellness/training/index for a complete description of the program. You can also learn what it is like to live in Logan Utah by watching a YouTube clip created by the intern class of 2014 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ITLDdJ6OGo).
