The clinical psychology internship is the culminating experience of the professional psychology program. It is among the last major tasks undertaken by the student prior to graduation and represents a significant commitment of time and effort. The internship provides opportunity to use and refine clinical skills and knowledge and to consolidate one’s professional identity.
The internship requires either full-time supervised clinical experience for one calendar year or a comparable half-time supervised clinical experience for two consecutive years. Internship training must be taken at a site that is APA accredited or meets Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Center (APPIC) criteria. Students apply for internships through the APPIC match procedure. The School of Professional Psychology has an outstanding record of placing students for internship experiences across the United States and Canada. We also have our own APA-accredited internship training program.
