History of the Doctoral Internship in Psychology
The doctoral internship in psychology at CAPS began as a two year part-time program in August, 1995 and moved to a full-time internship with three interns in 1999. Practicum students in counseling psychology also take part in some of the training and service activities.
The CAPS internship program has been a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) since 1996. A self study was completed and submitted to the American Psychological Association (APA) as part of an application for accreditation in August, 1997. The doctoral internship program received APA accreditation in 1998 and was reaccredited in 2003, 2009, and 2017. The next accreditation site visit will be held in 2024.
