Miami-Dade County funds four full-time, pre-doctoral, clinical psychology interns each year. The general training philosophy of the Psychology Internship Program follows a Mentor/Practitioner model. Licensed mentor supervisors train interns to work with clients of all ages.
The internship program is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). The internship stipend is $20,500. All interns are considered temporary Miami-Dade County employees.
Preferential consideration is given to applicants who have demonstrated an interest in working with children, adolescents and adults through related coursework, practice, externships and work experience.
The Internship Program abides by all APPIC policies, including the APPIC match policies.
