Internship Program Admissions

Briefly describe in narrative form important information to assist potential applicants in assessing their likely fit with your program. This description must be consistent with the program’s policies on intern selection and practicum and academic preparation requirements:
The internship is an intensive experience guided by the scientist-practitioner/clinical scientist model. Accordingly, interns selected for this program should have considerable supervised clinical practicum experience and demonstrate considerable interest and ability in conducting research beyond that required by the masters thesis and doctoral dissertation.

Additionally, although our program’s faculty have many theoretical orientations, the large majority are behavioral or cognitive-behavioral. Thus, we seek interns who have a background in behavioral or cognitive-behavioral theory and at least basic experience in implementing these intervention strategies with clinical populations. You do not have to be experienced in a particular intervention, or with a particular clinical population, to complete any rotation at the Charleston Consortium. If you have the appropriate foundation of clinical preparation and skill, our rotations will help you develop your expertise level, no matter your starting point.
