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:

The APA-accredited internship program at Arizona State University is a 2000 hour, 12-month training program. WE use the APPIC Internship Matching Program for our selection process. Candidates must be enrolled in a counseling or clinical psychology doctoral program and have completed a minimum of 350 intervention hours. All relevant course work must be completed.

Our program is designed to provide emerging professional psychologists an opportunity to solidify existing skills, learn new competencies, and integrate their identity as a psychologist. We strive to provide a program that balances both challenge and support while exposing interns to the variety of roles and experiences typical of university counseling center psychologists.
