Psychology interns

Psychology Interns are doctoral students in applied psychology programs that matched with the University Counseling Service for a year-long, full-time placement. They perform many of the same roles as the full-time staff. The psychology internship is the last stage of training before a doctoral degree is conferred and one of the last training opportunities before a psychologist can pursue independent licensure. Psychology interns are under the supervision of several senior UCS staff members.
