Internship Program Admissions

Date Program Tables are updated: Sept 1, 2017
Briefly describe in narrative form important information to assist potential applicants in assessing their likely fit with your program. This description must be consistent with the program’s policies on intern selection and practicum and academic preparation requirements:
A major strength of WCPIP is the varied experience in the field of health service psychology offered to interns. Each intern in the program spends the equivalent of one day per week at a secondary clinical placement; however, each intern is selected as a primary intern at only one of the agencies. The majority of experience is obtained at the primary site. You are encouraged to evaluate thoroughly which site best meets your training needs. Secondary clinical placements are determined after the match process when interns arrive for orientation.
Does the program require that applicants have received a minimum number of hours of the following at time of application? If Yes, indicate how many:
Total Direct Contact Intervention Hours N Y Amount: 300
Total Direct Contact Assessment Hours N Y Amount: 75
