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 requires that applicants are in good-standing and currently enrolled in a psychology doctoral program and have completed the following prior to beginning internship :

  1. A minimum of 400 doctoral intervention hours
  2. A minimum of 75 doctoral assessment hours
  3. A minimum of 5 integrated reports
  4. Successful dissertation proposal by the application deadline

NV-PIC also invites applicants who have some experience or special interest in working with underserved or diverse populations. In addition to the requirements noted above, NV-PIC takes into consideration the potential commitment or interest of any prospective intern to remain in Nevada following internship. Developing a strong behavioral health workforce is an important consideration for the state, and an interest in remaining in Nevada to join the workforce is considered a benefit in a potential intern.
