Psychology Internships

Candidates must be enrolled in an APA-Accredited clinical, school or counseling doctoral program (Ph.D. or Psy.D.).  All formal coursework and comprehensive examinations must be completed by the start of the internship.  The candidates should have demonstrated interests and prior academic and practicum experiences that are appropriate for the internship, such as prior experience working with adolescents, outpatient therapy experience, interest in working with underserved populations and interest in working in an interdisciplinary setting. We pay careful attention to the goodness-of-fit between candidates and our program. Candidates’ cover letters and essays are reviewed for specific reference to interest in the training that we offer.

All interested applicants should submit applications using the AAPI online application process by November 1, 2021. Applicants will be notified about interview decisions by December 15, 2021. Learn more.
