WBH Health Service Psychology Internship Program
About the Application Process
The WBH Health Service Psychology Internship Program prioritizes candidates who have successfully completed their comprehensive examinations and have successfully proposed their dissertation (preference may be given to applicants who have defended the dissertation). It is encouraged for candidates to have completed a minimum of 300 direct therapy hours and 50 direct assessment hours.
Special consideration is taken at this time due to the global pandemic interfering with typical direct service practices. Furthermore, the program considers candidates who have completed at least three years of academic training from a regionally accredited Counseling or Clinical PhD or PsyD program. The training committee prefers candidates who have prior experience working in a community mental health or recovery-oriented settings.
Some personal characteristics that are sought from candidates include self-starting, team-oriented, willing to learn and open-minded, and intellectually humble. Candidates are expected to submit a current resume or curriculum vitae, official transcript, and three letters of recommendation along with a completed APPIC Application for Psychology Internships (APPI). A Background Criminal Investigation will be necessary at the start of the internship.
- Official transcripts of graduate work
- Letters of recommendation from 3 referrals who are familiar with the candidate’s professional and academic work
