Qualifications of Applicants

The doctoral internships in clinical psychology are for advanced students (fourth year and beyond) in good standing in APA-approved programs in clinical psychology. Such standing assumes that applicants will have the following preparation: supervised clinical practicum experience, as well as courses or training in personality theory, diagnostic psychological testing, psychotherapy, abnormal psychology or psychopathology, cultural responsivity, ethical and professional conduct, and research methods. Applicants with doctorates in fields of psychology other than clinical should consult the APA guidelines on retraining requirements.

Applicants from Underrepresented Groups: Black, Hispanic and Spanish-speaking psychologists are in considerable demand in the Boston area, and internship applications from members of these and other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.
