Consistent with the internship training community nationally, we will engage in interviewing and recruitment virtually. Our AAPI deadline will be November 1, 2021. We would expect to review applications and offer virtual interviews in December and January. The interview day would be a half-day structured around a presentation by track directors, Q and A with current interns, and 3-4 interviews of 30 minutes with faculty. Requests to meet with specific faculty will be honored if possible.
It is highly likely that the training year will involve a combination of face-to-face and virtual clinical care, supervision, and seminars. Above all, the safety and well-being of trainees and faculty is our highest priority. As such, telehealth training activities will be a featured aspect of our initial onboarding and orientation processes. There may also be some limitations in our elective opportunities due to the challenge of implementation in a virtual environment. Our track directors will consult individually with interns to carefully and creatively find options that meet specific training interests. Our training year will start the week of July 1.
Thank you for considering our training program as we all take on the ongoing challenges of the current public health crisis. We will do our best to provide a safe and secure setting promoting professional growth. Please do not hesitate to reach out for conversation and questions.
The Program offers training for six pre-doctoral interns in clinical psychology annually; three Adult Track and two Child Track based in the Department of Psychiatry, and one Pediatric Psychology Track based in the University of Wisconsin American Family Children's Hospital. The internship follows a clinical science model of training and is intended for those individuals whose training and interests emphasize the application of scientific principles within clinical psychology. We welcome applications from members of diverse populations. As an internship, we endeavor to foster an atmosphere that supports diversity of experiences as well as opinions. Theoretical and therapeutic orientation of the training staff is quite diverse, including cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, psychodynamic, and systems approaches.
