Predoctoral Internship in Professional Psychology

Application Procedure

Application Materials

The internship utilizes the APPIC Application for Psychology Internship (AAPI) online, which you can access at the AAPI Online website. All of the application materials will be uploaded via the applicant portal on the APPIC website. We will not accept any paper materials.

The electronic application includes:

• Completed AAPI

• Curriculum vita

• Cover letter

• Three letters of recommendation from supervisors or faculty members familiar with your clinical and academic work

• Graduate school transcripts

Candidate selection/ Interview procedures

In the initial screen, each application is read by at least two staff members. Through this process, candidates who look like the best possible matches with our site are selected from the pool for a second screening process conducted by the internship search committee, typically consisting of the Training Director, at least one staff member, and at least one intern. The second screen narrows the pool down to the most promising 25 candidates who are then invited for interviews. We adhere to the uniform notification date of December 15th to invite applicants for interviews or let them know that they are no longer under consideration.

Applicants who are invited for interviews may select either an on-site or phone interview. Interviews take place during January and last for 2 hours and 45 minutes. During the interview, applicants meet with the Training Director, four different staff members, and at least 2 interns. Because we recognize that candidates are making decisions about which sites best match their needs at the same time that we’re assessing which candidates are the best matches for what we offer, we are sure to provide ample time during interviews for candidates to have any questions answered, and are also available after the interview has ended to answer additional questions by phone or email.
