Program Description

Mid-Ohio Psychological Services, Inc. (MOPS) is a community mental health center located across 4 sites in central Ohio that offers outpatient services to a wide variety of populations, including underserved populations. MOPS Internship Program (MOPS-IP) aims to prepare Doctoral Psychology Interns to function as entry level professionals in Health Service Psychology. The program is generalist in nature and seeks to expand the intern’s experience and awareness of self and others while refining skills necessary to practice psychology effectively utilizing evidence-based approaches. MOPS strives to function in ways that reflect professional ethics and standards that place a high value on the dignity and worth of individuals regardless of their race, ethnicity, age, color, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, physical or mental handicap, developmental disability, genetic information, human immunodeficiency virus status, or in any manner prohibited by local, state, or federal laws. We are committed to fostering a diverse pool of candidates for all staff, including our 3 psychology intern positions. MOPS-IP is committed to creating an inclusive and effective teaching and learning environment that reflects our value of, and appreciation for, individual differences. The agency employs approximately 65 clinical staff, 3 of which are licensed Psychologists, who provide a variety of services including individual therapy, telehealth therapy, couples and family therapy, group therapy, case management, home based/school based therapy (when/if not in a telehealth environment), diagnostic assessment, and formal psychological evaluations. On average, interns are expected to provide a minimum of 14 hours of direct clinical services per week and are anticipated to carry a caseload that reflects a higher number based on the typical attendance rate of community mental health. Interns typically have between 24-28 hours per week of open availability to clients, with some variance from week to week. In addition, the interns will be trained to conduct psychological evaluations throughout the year, typically beginning the second or third quarter of internship. Individual and group supervision, clinical consultation, and didactic trainings are all used to supplement direct clinical experiences to allow for integration of concepts and to aid in treatment planning, intervention, and case conceptualization.  For more information regarding the specifics of the internship program, please contact the agency Training Director or view the Internship Handbook & Brochure on our website.
