Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology 2018-19

The UW Tacoma Student Counseling Center offers a 12-month doctoral internship program in professional psychology, with two intern positions. The interns at the UW Tacoma Student Counseling Center receive intensive, supportive training in individual, couples and group psychotherapy, assessment, outreach, crisis intervention, and consultation. The program is designed to allow interns to develop a balanced general foundation of clinical knowledge and experience. At the same time, there is enough flexibility to permit each individual to explore and develop particular areas of clinical interest. The program is an APPIC member training site, and adheres to APPIC regulations regarding selection and notification of internship applicants. For more information, please view our Program Description. 

NOTE:  The University of Washington Tacoma Student Counseling Center Internship submitted an application for initial APA accreditation and we completed our APA Site Visit on October 17th and 18th, 2017.  We are currently awaiting the Site Visit report and subsequent decision.  While we are excited to report on this milestone, there are no guarantees about the outcome of our accreditation application.

Our MATCH program code number is: 212711
