Internships in Clinical Psychology
Internship is the culminating experience in the training of doctoral students in clinical psychology. It is an intense one- or two-year period of supervised practice that usually follows the completion of graduate course-work and practicum. Completion of the internship and the dissertation bring to a close the graduate training of clinical psychologists, and lead to the granting of the doctoral degree.
