Graduate Student Clinicians Program

Application Process

The Graduate Student Clinician (GSC) Training Program accepts graduate students from the disciplines of social work, mental health counseling, marriage & family therapy, and applied psychology (counseling, clinical, and school). Acceptance of graduate student clinicians is contingent on the expressed interest and capability of the student, availability of supervisors, and office space.

In order to qualify, applicants must be currently enrolled and in good standing in their graduate program and be approved for a supervision model that may include secondary supervision by an advanced trainee such as a doctoral intern or post-doctoral fellow.

Application Material:

  • Cover letter describing interest in collegiate mental health, any relevant experience, semester(s) applying for, and desired number of hours per week at the USF Counseling Center
  • CV or resume
  • A brief letter from your graduate program's field placement coordinator or director of clinical training outlining any training and supervision requirements for the placement sought
  • A letter of recommendation from a previous clinical supervisor (if available) or from another professional familiar with the quality of your work, within the past two years.
