Interns are systematically evaluated in all areas in which they work. Interns, in turn, evaluate their supervisors and the training program. This evaluation process, including both written and oral components, takes place in October, December, May, and August. Two evaluations of intern progress are sent to the student's academic program during the year, and the final evaluation is sent at the close of the year. The Intern Evaluation form includes supervisors’ ratings for the nine profession-wide competencies required by the APA Standards of Accreditation. Interns must also deliver 450 hours of direct service, which includes clinical service, outreach, and provision of clinical supervision.
If you are enrolled in an academic training program that requests additional training contracts and/or evaluations, these will not be completed by the UCS training staff. Your doctoral program may choose to use the data from the UCS evaluations to complete their own forms. You are strongly encouraged to consult with your Director of Clinical Training or the UCS Director of Training if you have questions about this policy.
Two advisory meetings are held each fall and spring semester during which the intern meets with all supervisors in order to review goals and activities. The supervisory team for each intern provides feedback to the intern and assists in generating methods for reaching the intern's goals.
