University Setting

The University Counseling Service (UCS) is an integral part of the Division of Student Life at The University of Iowa. With approximately 33,000 students, including graduates, undergraduates, and professional students, the University is a nationally and internationally recognized academic and research institution. Important resources to the UCS internship program are the APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program on campus and the close availability of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). The nearby Student Health, with psychiatric services, also provides an important resource for the internship.

The University of Iowa was the first public university in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis and the first U.S. institution of higher education to accept creative work for advanced degrees in the arts. It had the first law school west of the Mississippi and broadcast the world's first educational television programs.

Iowa City

Iowa City, in Johnson County, is a spirited, upbeat community of about 60,000 people that features the excitement of Big Ten athletics and the performing arts. The main attraction is The University of Iowa with its recognized programs in creative arts, medicine, and space science. The first permanent capitol of the state of Iowa has been restored to its original decor and is used as a University building.

University Counseling Service Intern Offices

The UCS clinical staff members are housed in several locations, including the residence halls, College of Dentistry, Department of Athletics, and two additional office locations.  The intern offices are located in Westlawn, the largest office. Intern offices have a window and video recording equipment. Each office has a networked computer with Internet access. Like many other centers across the country, the UCS is providing telehealth as its exclusive medium as of the end of July, 2020, and the majority of clinicians are working from home.  Currently, interns have the option of working from their Westlawn office or from their homes.
