Internship Program Admissions

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:

Applicants for the JSUMC Internship in Health Service Psychology must be doctoral students in good standing at an American Psychological Association (APA) or Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) accredited graduate program in the fields of clinical and/or counseling psychology. Further, applicants must be approved by their University Training Director for the start of internship. Candidates will only be considered for the Psychology Internship Program if they have completed adequate and appropriate training for the position prior to application outlined below:

  • The Candidate has completed their formal academic coursework toward a doctoral degree in professional psychology (e.g. clinical or counseling)
  • The Candidate has successfully completed their institution’s qualifying/comprehensive exams
  • The Candidate has participated in closely supervised experiential clinical training in practicum or externship placements.

Selection criteria will also include the applicant’s prior training experiences, interests and expressed internship goals, as they relate to the aims of the program and the training experiences offered in the internship program. The type and number of supervised, face-to-face clinical contact hours will also be considered to determine adequacy and appropriateness of prior practicum training. The applicant’s statement of training and professional goals and career interests will also be considered. Our interviewing and applicant rating process is designed to be as objective as possible and unbiased with regard to cultural and individual diversity. We also have a section in our Internship Initial Applicant Screening Guide designed to help screeners attend to cultural and individual differences and diversity when selecting applicants to interview. During the interview, the applicant’s ability to discuss their clinical experiences and interests as it relates to JSUMC’s internship in health service psychology will also be considered.
