Interview process description:

Centerstone participates in the APPIC Match and utilizes the Online APPI application materials. In addition to those materials, a child psychological assessment is required for applicants wishing to be considered for the Centerstone sites and an adult evaluation is required for those interested in AllCare. Completed packets for 2022-2023 must be submitted no later than November 5th; incomplete packets will not be reviewed.

Each site in the consortium makes offers for interviews independently; however, we do co-ordinate interview days so that they can be convenient to applicants to more than one site. Such interviews will include direct contact with psychology supervisors and current psychology interns on a day arranged for intern interviews. Interviews will begin on specific Thursdays or Fridays beginning in December. Phone interviews can be arranged in unusual circumstances.

Depending on the state of the pandemic in the 2022-2023 interviewing period, some in-person interviews may be offered. However, virtual interviews with our psychologists, current psychology interns and other staff will be offered and may be the primary mode of interviewing.
