Admissions to the Internship Program are made in a two-step process. The Internship Admissions Committee, which is chaired by the Internship Director and includes representative from each of the areas, selects applicants to be invited for on-campus interviews; following the interviews, the particular faculty members associated with each of the three training areas (i.e., clinical child psychology; pediatric psychology; medical/health psychology; and clinical neuropsychology) decide on the rankings of candidates to be submitted to the National Matching Services, Inc.
