Clinical Internship

A one-year, full-time predoctoral clinical internship at an APA-accredited site is required of all students. This requirement also may be fulfilled by a two-year, half-time internship. Each year, applicants work with the Internship Application Committee to prepare their applications and prepare for interviews. Since this committee began working fully with students on their applications in the 2011 application year, our students have had a 96% match rate with APA-accredited internships (please see Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data for more information).
