We aim to prepare interns to assume different roles as professional psychologists including but not limited to full-time clinicians, applied clinical researchers, and dedicated research faculty.
We conduct baseline self-evaluations. The level of competence displayed will contribute to the intern’s subsequent training goals and plans for the year. Interns are formally evaluated three times within the year and interns are given the opportunity to evaluate themselves, their supervisors, and the training program on a regular basis.
We have clearly defined minimum levels of achievement:
In order for interns to successfully complete the internship, they must:
- Complete the 12-month internship;
- Provide 500 hours of face-to-face individual or group therapy;
- Achieve “Entry to Practice” for each competency; and
- Not be found to have engaged in any significant unprofessional or unethical behavior.
