University of Washington
Psychology Internship Program
Program Evaluation and Supervision
At the beginning of each rotation, the psychology resident completes a self-assessment of his/her experience relative to the rotation learning objectives to focus the resident and the supervisor on the resident's needs. The self-assessment helps the supervisor try to tailor the resident’s experience on each rotation to be planned and graduated to fit the resident’s training needs. Progress will be monitored throughout the rotation.
Evaluation of Resident by Supervisor
At the end of each rotation, the supervisor fills out an evaluation on the resident similar to the resident's self-assessment form. Copies of the resident evaluations are sent to the resident and their mentor. The resident evaluations are summarized at the end of the year in a letter by the resident's mentor, to their graduate training program, to communicate our assessment of the resident’s progress during the year.
Evaluation of Rotation and Supervisor by Resident
The psychology resident completes an evaluation of each supervisor and an evaluation of their experience at each rotation site. All evaluations are sent to the internship office. Copies of the resident evaluations of the supervisors are sent to the supervisor. Copies of the rotation evaluations are sent to the rotation coordinator and the track coordinator.
All evaluations are reviewed by the director of the internship program before copies are sent out.
Each resident receives at least four hours of supervision each week, at least half of which is individual supervision. Many rotations also offer additional structured learning opportunities such as case conferences, interdisciplinary conferences, opportunities to observe faculty interviews or ongoing treatment with patients, and so forth.
