Psychology Internship Program

The Psychology Practicum/Internship is open to students seeking a Master of Science in clinical or counseling psychology or a Master of Social Work (MSW), who have a strong interest in becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).  

The program offers a one year, hands-on counseling experience in clinical psychology under the tutelage of qualified supervisors. Our primary objective is to prepare psychology interns for entry into advanced post-doctoral training or professional practice in clinical psychology. 

This program is designed to equip interns with the skills required to provide clinical and psychological assessments, diagnosis, treatment, consultation, and other aspects of mental and behavioral health care with patients on an increasingly independent basis.  This includes developing expertise in the foundations of evidence-based practices, cultural diversity, and issues in professional development.

The strength of our internship program lies in the diversity of clinical experiences available to interns, combined with the teaching and training atmosphere available in an academic health center setting.  The clinical breadth of services provided by the department, and patients served by the Lloyd C. Elam Mental Health Center, make it possible for interns to obtain general clinical training across a range of settings.
