Summary of Internship

Full-time doctoral interns will work 40 hours per week for 12 months. Doctoral interns are required to work at least 2,000 hours in their time period, including supervision, training, and a minimum of 500 direct client contact hours. In this internship, doctoral students pursue clinical training at a distance from their doctoral program, and complete their training as a capstone of their doctoral training and education. The pragmatic advantages for students and programs are clear: students complete their internship quickly and can proceed to graduate, move on to postdoctoral training and licensure, while programs get a yearly influx of highly trained doctoral interns, equipped with the latest academic knowledge, who are seeing a high volume of clients. Frostburg State University's internship has APPIC membership and participates in the match process.
