Internship Program Admissions
Description of applicant selection:
Eligible applicants for the UMMC Psychology Internship Program are doctoral students in APA-accredited Clinical or Counseling Psychology programs. All coursework required for the doctoral degree must be completed prior to the start of internship, as well as any qualifying, comprehensive, or preliminary doctoral examinations. We prefer candidates whose doctoral dissertations will be completed, or at least well under way, before the beginning of the internship year. In addition, we are interested in applicants who desire to become licensed psychologists and seek employment in academic and other clinical research settings.
Describe any other required minimum criteria used to screen applicants:
Though we do not require a minimum number of assessment or intervention hours we seek applicants who have accumulated at least 500 total hours of direct clinical contact supervised by psychologists, through a combination of therapy and assessment experience during their graduate training and which are verified by their Director of Clinical Training.
