 Clinical Internship Outcomes

The completion of a full-time 12-month internship is a requirement for graduation from the clinical program.  The Ph.D. degree is awarded only when both the internship and dissertation are completed.  Students are expected to begin the internship at the start of their fifth or sixth year. Students usually apply for internship in the fall semester of their fourth or fifth year.  Students are not allowed to apply for internships until they have passed their preliminary examination and their committee approves their dissertation proposal. Students need the approval of the clinical faculty to apply to internship.  With rare exceptions, students only complete internships in agencies accredited by the American Psychological Association (or Canadian Psychological Association).  Below is a list of the settings where our students have gone on internship in recent years.
