Evaluation Procedures



In the beginning of the spring semester and again near the end of the internship year, interns are given formal feedback about their professional skills and performances. Evaluations are written by all staff members who supervise interns, and interns write evaluations for each of their clinical supervisors. The evaluations are communicated to the intern both verbally and in writing, and they are ultimately forwarded to the Director of Internship Training. As a part of this process, group and individual supervisors may exchange information and/or perceptions about the progress of interns. In addition to evaluation of the interns, we ask interns to evaluate the program and their experiences at the Center. Evaluations are viewed as critical aspects of training and allow individuals to maximize their strengths and develop new competencies.
