Applicants will be notified about the interview via email. The applicant may choose whether they would prefer an interview using a virtual format or an in-person interview at The School at Columbia University. The internship program offers the option of an in-person interview to provide the applicant the opportunity to visit and tour the training site, should that be helpful in their Internship decision making process. Choice of a virtual interview or in-person interview will not impact the internship site's ranking process. Columbia University requires COVID vaccination for employment and on-site visits, including interviews. Attestation and proof of vaccination must be provided when entering the building for an interview. Interviews are individual (as opposed to a group format) and are 30-40 minutes with 2 supervising psychologists. Questions will be provided immediately prior to the interview. Following the interview, applicants will also be afforded the opportunity to speak with a current psychology intern. Interviews will be conducted between January 3rd - 27th, 2023.
Interns are involved in a wide range of clinical training activities. The internship training program provides opportunities for interns to develop new skills, as well as to refine skills they have acquired through graduate training. Through the internship program, interns develop proficiency and competency in the areas of assessment, counseling, parent and teacher consultation, behavioral assessment and intervention, crisis intervention, preschool screening, educational interventions, in-service presentations, and research. As The School serves children from varied ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as students with varying educational and psychological needs, interns are provided with diverse training experiences. Each intern receives a minimum of two hours per week of regularly scheduled formal face-to-face individual supervision and two hours of group supervision. Supervision is provided by doctoral-level staff psychologists who are licensed in New York State. Interns attend a weekly training seminar provided by staff members and professionals in the community, as well as a weekly full-CST team meeting.
