Psychology Internship Program

Dear Applicant,


Thank you for your interest in our Clinical Psychology Internship Program. For the coming internship year we will be offering six positions: Three will be generalist positions with an open emphasis, and three will be generalist positions with an emphasis in autism spectrum disorders. 

Applications for admission to the Psychology Internship Program are accepted from graduate students enrolled in APA Accredited Doctoral Programs in Clinical Psychology. It is expected that successful applicants will have completed at least three years of graduate training which has included formal educational and clinical experiences with assessment and intervention, as well as training and experience with research.  

In order to be considered for admission to this program for the training year beginning July of 2016, you must submit your completed application via the APPIC Online Application Portal no later than November 1st, 2015. Please note that we have two different match numbers: One for the generalist positions with an open emphasis (#129411) and one for the generalist positions with autism spectrum disorder emphasis (#129412). We adhere to all APPIC Policies throughout the application and selection process. 

In mid-December, you will be notified by email regarding whether or not you are being offered an interview at our site. We will invite approximately 50 applicants to come to Indianapolis on one of our two interview dates: Tuesday January 5 and January 11, 2016. During the interview days, applicants will receive an overview of the program, meet with faculty and current interns, and tour our training facilities. Each applicant will participate in at least two individual interviews with faculty members. Please be advised that if you are asked to come for an interview we will ask you either to supply us with a photograph of yourself, or we will take one of you on the day of the interview. The photographs will only be used to help faculty accurately recall each applicant and are in no way used for decision-making or evaluation.

Please note: the 2016-2017 class will be our first with a July 1 start date.  This means that our 2016-2017 class will overlap for two months with our 2015-2016 class, which will be the last class to have a September 1 start date.  We are taking great care to plan for this overlap to ensure both classes receive the highest quality of training. 

We look forward to reviewing your completed application through the APPIC Online Application Portal.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
