Internship Program Admissions Process

Applications are only accepted through the APPIC Match process

Applicants must be doctoral students enrolled in an APA-accredited graduate program in Counseling or Clinical Psychology. Academic coursework and preparation must be in accordance with APA accreditation standards. To be considered for the AHWC psychology internship, applicants should meet the following requirements:

  1. Comprehensive examinations must be passed before applying for internship.
  2. Candidates must document a minimum of 400 direct service (intervention) hours prior to submitting their application.
  3. Intervention and training experience within a university or college counseling setting must be documented.
  4. All required coursework must be completed prior to the start of internship.
  5. Applicants must have successfully proposed their dissertations prior to the start of internship.

Preference will be given to applicants who have received live or taped supervision at some point in their practicum training. The Center values diversity and encourages applicants of diverse ethnic, racial, age, religious, sexual orientation, and other backgrounds to apply.

Successful applicants will demonstrate a strong interest in providing psychotherapy and other mental health services to college students, particularly within a multi-culturally diverse setting. They are typically interested in increasing their breadth of knowledge and clinical experience not only in individual and group psychotherapy, but also in outreach, assessment, consultation, and the provision of supervision.
