 Application Process


While the primary function of the Counseling Center is to provide counseling services to students of the University of Washington, the Center maintains a strong commitment to facilitating each intern's transition from trainee to professional psychologist.  Thus, we are looking for people who are flexible and interested in learning, but who also have the maturity and skills to offer quality services under the supervision of our professional staff. Specifically, we require the following:

1.  Candidates must have majored in counseling or clinical psychology, and must have completed the following courses: psychopathology, counseling theory and technique, ethics, educational/psychological testing, and a minimum of 1000 hours of practicum.

2.  Candidates must have passed their doctoral qualifying examinations prior to the commencement of the internship, and be certified by their academic training director as ready for the internship experience.



Our National Computer Match Program Code number is 162011

Selection Process
