Internship Program Admissions

Briefly describe in narrative form important information to assist potential applicants in assessing their likely fit with your program. This description must be consistent with the program’s policies on intern selection and practicum and academic preparation requirements:

NV-PIC bases its selection process on a holistic review of the potential intern’s application, including the AAPI, cover letter, CV, standardized reference forms, graduate transcripts, and writing sample. Applicants with a minimum of 500 intervention hours, experience with assessment, and who have defended their dissertation proposal are preferred. In addition, NV-PIC prefers applicants who have some experience or special interest in working with underserved or diverse populations. NV-PIC takes into consideration the interest of any prospective intern to remain in Nevada following internship, as developing a strong behavioral health workforce is an important consideration for the state.
