PSY 500 - Internship in Clinical Psychology


Semester Hours: 1
Fall, Spring
The psychology internship is an organized training program designed to provide the intern with a planned, programmed sequence of training experiences to assure breadth and quality of training specifically in a range of psychological assessment and intervention activities conducted directly with recipients of psychological services. Typical clinical psychology internship settings include community mental health centers, hospitals, registered training institutes, medical school consortiums, and university-based counseling centers. At least 25 percent of trainee’s time is spent in face-to-face psychological services to patients/clients. Regularly scheduled individual supervision is provided by one or more doctoral-level licensed psychologists, at a ratio of no less than one hour of supervision for every 20 internship hours. The internship must provide at least two hours per week in didactic activities such as case conferences, seminars, in-service training, or grand rounds. The internship experience (minimum 1,800 hours) must be completed in no less than 10 months and no more than 24 months, although typically, it will occur during a single calendar year.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Open only to students matriculated in the doctoral program in clinical psychology or combined clinical and school psychology.  All course work at the 400-level or lower must be completed prior to internship.
