EVMS Clinical Psychology Internship applicants must complete the online Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) application. Our program must receive all completed electronic application materials by Nov. 1.
According to APPIC requirements, the following information should be included in each candidate's application:
- Completed general application form
- Cover letter
- Curriculum Vitae
- At least three letters of recommendation from persons familiar with the applicant's professional skills and development
- Work samples
- Official transcripts of the applicant's graduate work
After initial review of the application materials, we will contact selected applicants during the second week in December to schedule an interview.
Interviews provide an opportunity for applicants to become more familiar with the medical center facilities and gain a greater understanding of the program. In addition, they offer faculty an opportunity to become better acquainted with applicants and their interests. If special circumstances arise, telephone interviews are allowed.
Interviews are normally conducted in January. Each candidate will be scheduled for a 30-minute orientation session with one of the internship co-directors and three 30-minute interviews, two with faculty members and one with a current intern. There will be a catered luncheon at noon on each of the interview days, which will be attended by all available current interns and candidates. Attendance at this luncheon is not required, but the intent is to give each candidate a time, away from faculty and staff, to freely discuss our program with current interns. Tours of the EVMS campus are encouraged, and all applicants are urged to visit training sites of interest.
Interviews are generally held during the month of January each year.
Following the interview process, applications from all candidates under consideration are reviewed by the Internship Selection Committee, which consists of the internship co-directors and selected internship faculty members. All intern applicants are rank-ordered during this process. The total number of annual applications for the past decade has ranged from 90 to 164. The typical number of funded internship slots has varied from three to eight.
This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept or use any ranking-related information from any internship applicant.
