General Expectations

The NV-PIC training program is a year-long, full-time doctoral internship experience, beginning and ending in August. The start date for the 2020-2021 cohort was August 3, 2020. The start date for the 2021-2022 cohort was August 9, 2021.

Across training sites, interns are expected to complete a minimum of 2,080 hours of training during the the internship year, of which at least 25% (500 hours) are spent in the provision of direct face-to-face clinical services. This includes completing an average of 10-20 hours per week of face-to-face direct service delivery. Interns are expected to achieve the aims and competencies of the internship program (see NV-PIC Competencies) and to abide by the APA Code of Ethics, the requirements of the NV-PIC training program, and the policies and procedures of their primary training site.

NV-PIC strives to be a family-friendly internship and welcomes interns from all backgrounds with a variety of family structures and needs. Please contact NV-PIC’s Training Director should you have any questions.

NV-PIC has a comprehensive Due Process procedure which outlines the procedure for addressing concerns about intern performance, as well as interns’ concerns about training. These procedures are provided in hard copy to all interns during orientation and are available for download under Policies and Procedures.
