Application Process

We accept applications from students in Doctoral programs in Clinical or Counseling Psychology, who are eligible to apply for internship through AAPIC. Prior to application submission, applicants must have obtained 400 intervention hours (we will consider applications with fewer hours due to COVID) and passed comprehensive exams. Applicants will also need to successfully propose their dissertation by ranking deadline, if their program requires proposal to be complete prior to start of internship. Interns must complete all course work prior to starting internship.

Application deadline is November 2, 2023

The internship selection process involves three steps:

The first step is a review of application materials, including the AAPI completed online, with cover letter, current curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, with at least two from clinical supervisors who will speak directly about the quality of your clinical work and your engagement in clinical supervision, and official graduate transcripts. Following the review of applications, our selection committee selects applicants to interview, who are assessed as having experiences and goals that are identified as being a "good fit" with the training experiences and expectations at our site.

The second step of the selection process involves participation in interviews with members of the staff. Interviews will be via videoconference in the middle of December. Applicants are individually interviewed by a selection committee consisting of three staff members for about one hour. Applicants also have a 45-minute interview with the training director or director.

Applicants will also have an opportunity to see the campus via video, time to talk with a current intern, and connect with staff who may share similar interests.

After the completion of interviews, CAPS submits a rank list to APPIC, for participation in the match. We abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant.
