Psychology Internship COVID-19 Update

2023-2024 Training and Recruitment Update

Recruitment Considering the values of safety, equity, ethics, science, and autonomy, we will engage in virtual interviewing and recruitment for the 2023-2024 intern training class. Our AAPI deadline will be November 1, 2022. We would expect to review applications and offer virtual interviews for December and January. The interview day would be a half-day structured around a presentation by track directors, Q&A with current interns, and 3-4 interviews with faculty. To give you a best sense of our program overall, we will also provide materials related to the physical space of our program and what it is like to live in Madison. 

Training The 2023-24 year will likely involve a combination of virtual and in-person clinical care, supervision, and seminars. All interns will be mostly onsite to engage in these training activities, providing a strong sense of our supportive training community. Our program track directors and administrative support staff will be available to assist in carefully crafting a program of clinical activities to meet individualized training goals and objectives. This is a core value of our training program.

Thank you for considering our training program. Our program is committed to provide a safe and secure setting that promotes professional growth. Please do not hesitate to reach out for conversation and questions.

University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Psychology Interns follow both University of Wisconsin and UW Health requirements and processes related to vaccinations (influenza, COVID, etc.). As such, all Psychology Interns must complete a COVID-19 vaccination series, including booster vaccination, or submit a waiver and receive an exemption, by the start of the internship training year which is July 1. Similarly, all Psychology Interns are required to receive an influenza vaccination or submit a waiver and be granted an exemption during the flu vaccine season (deadline announced by SMPH Human Resources). Psychology Interns may revoke their waivers in the future with proper documentation. Psychology Interns who knowingly provide false information on a waiver may be subjected to discipline up to and including termination.
