Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology

Internship Benefits and Stipend

Stipend

The internship is for a one-year period from August 1, 2015, to July 31, 2016.  There is a $25,250/year stipend. 

Benefits

Basic employee benefits include use of Dufour Athletic Center and use of the Metro Library Consortium. Health insurance is available. Interns receive 12 paid vacation days and 12 paid sick days during their time at CUA.  Interns are encouraged to take the majority of their vacation time during the summer months, when it is least disruptive to the functioning of the Counseling Center and to the care of our clients. In addition, interns receive a 250 dollar professional development stipend. 

Liability Insurance

We ask that interns carry their own professional liability insurance coverage. Malpractice insurance is available for student members of the American Psychological Association at a relatively low cost; the Counseling Center will pay the cost of this insurance.
