The Counseling Center has established agreements with four affiliated training agencies. These agencies provide varied opportunities for scholarly learning, professional collaboration, role modeling, and mentoring of interns. Additionally, they provide opportunities for a wide range of supervised experience in clinical areas such as neuropsychology, behavioral medicine, substance abuse treatment, palliative care, and comprehensive rehabilitation. Interns may select external placements on the basis of currently available opportunities, their interests, previous experience, and level of training in any prerequisites required by the site/rotation.
Please check out the main website of each of the affiliated training agencies below. Opportunities at each site vary by year (i.e. which clinics or programs are taking students) and new training sites are occasionally added as opportunities become available.
