Admissions

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.

If you wish to apply for an appointment as a psychology intern, you should complete the AAPI Online which may be accessed at www.appic.org ; click on APPI Online. Please specify in your cover letter which Major area of Study (Neuropsychology, Medical/Health or Clinical Child Psychology, Pediatric Psychology) you are applying for. Include three letters of recommendation from individuals who are knowledgeable about your clinical training. Please upload and attach to your electronic application a work sample of a psychological evaluation report that you personally have written. Be sure to protect the confidentiality of patients or clients and their families (i.e., compliant with all federal regulations regarding patient privacy).

All application materials must be submitted by November 2, 2020 to ensure consideration for selection. Personal interviews will be offered to those applicants who have passed an initial review conducted by training faculty. We will do our best to give you a thorough and accurate understanding and feel for our program, even though it will be virtual. You will have an opportunity to participate in a program overview with the internship director, meet individually with faculty members, and meet in small groups with current interns. Personal interviews are scheduled for three (3) Fridays in January prior to the selection date. For January 2021, the Friday interview days will be January 8th, January 15th and January 22th. Although a personal interview is not required for admission, in nearly all cases it is beneficial and informative for both the Program and the applicant. For additional information, please contact Dr. Waxenberg, 352-273-5273 or via email: lwaxenbe@phhp.ufl.edu.
