Applicants will be reviewed for goodness of fit, interests, and whether we have what the applicant needs to assist her or him to reach the next stage of their professional development. Please see above; applications are due by November 1st and applicants will be notified by December 1st whether they are offered a virtual linterview, on a wait list, or no longer under consideration by our site. Please note that we require intern applicants to possess a masters degree in psychology, and the word "psychology" must be included on the masters transcript. Otherwise under WV law an intern must have a faculty member present for all professional interactions; with a masters degree in psychology the intern can function without such intense oversight. Non-US citizens can be considered on a case by case basis depending upon their visa status.
Please see the program description at:
The site is very comprehensive, and should provide you with a great deal of information necessary to make such an important decision.The program combines required and optional rotations, and provides a wide variety of experiences in a 1000-bed academic health center. It is student-focused and flexible, and a learning rather than service setting. Each student has unique career interests and needs so we strive to tailor the program accordingly. We know this is an arduous process and we wish you the best. We'll try to make the application process as painless as possible.
