Applications must be doctoral degree candidates in either clinical psychology or counseling psychology. All course work for the doctoral degree should be completed. Preference will be given to candidates from APA accredited doctoral programs.
Candidates from any of these programs are welcome to apply to either the part-time (two year) or the full-time internship. The part-time internship is partially affiliated with the University of Rochester's clinical doctoral program. This relationship means simply that qualified applicants from the UR program are ranked above other candidates; but qualified applicants from any program are considered and also ranked.
Some doctoral programs require their students to have additional training contracts and evaluations completed by their internship programs. The University of Rochester UCC internship does not enter into training contracts with academic training programs, and the UCC supervisors do not complete evaluations on interns developed by academic training programs. Our training program's evaluation procedures are extensive and comprehensive and copies of completed evaluations are provided to doctoral programs. If you are enrolled in an academic training program that requires such training contracts and evaluations, you are strongly encouraged to consult with your Director of Clinical Training as to whether or not you are eligible to apply to our program.
