SELECTION & INTERVIEW PROCESS
Applicants who meet the basic requirements (e.g. psychology graduate students with a minimum of three years of graduate study, broad clinical practicum experiences) and appear to be a good match for the program (e.g. interest in community mental health settings, rural populations) are selected for an on-site interview in January.
Interviews are an integral part of the selection process for both the program and interested applicants. On interview day, applicants meet with the Training Director to discuss the overall structure and goals of the internship, address general questions about the internship program, and review information about Frontier Health as an organization.
Applicants are interviewed by the Training Director, clinical supervisors, as well as other members of the Internship Training Committee.
Current interns are present to converse with interviewees throughout the day. Interviewee’s are provided lunch. Interviews provide an opportunity to assess goodness of fit for both internship program and intern applicant.
