APA Internship

We offer a full-time, twelve-month internship in health service psychology. The program runs from July 1 to June 30 and requires 2,000-hours (including a minimum of 500 direct service hours). You must be currently enrolled in an APA-accredited doctoral program and have completed at least 1,000 hours of graduate practicum experience by time of application, including 500 hours of psychotherapy and 75 hours of psychological assessment. You should have completed your comprehensive clinical examinations and proposed your dissertations, or capstone projects by the application deadline. Beyond these minimum criteria, admission is competitive and based upon the quality of your academic and practical preparation, personal goals, and the match between these goals and our program. Matched interns are required to undergo a background screening and Ohio BCI/FBI fingerprinting. No positions are automatically reserved for candidates from Wright State University or any other doctoral program.
