Please note that we only accept applications through the National Match Service Application for Psychology Internship Form (AAPI). Go to www.appic.org for instructions. 

Suggestions for Applying

  • Application materials should be submitted through the AAPI Portal and are due Friday, November 3, 2017 at 11:59 PM (EST).  
  • Well-written and carefully edited materials will receive the strongest consideration.
  • Make sure your cover letter is specific to our site. The clearer this is, the more readily we can determine "goodness of fit".
  • We require three letters of reference.
    • Two letters of reference must be from your most recent direct clinical supervisors. These supervisors must have directly observed and supervised your clinical work on site, rather than as a practicum coordinator.
    • The third letter should be from your advisor, a faculty member in your program, or an additional supervisor.
  • You must have advanced to doctoral candidacy, passed any required qualifying exams/comprehensive exams, and successfully proposed your dissertation prior to the submission of the ranking list (February 1). 
    • If you have a unique circumstance that might affect the date of your dissertation proposal, you may email to request an exception. 
  • One of our four internship positions specializes in working with international students. This intern will participate in the same activities as the other three interns, with an additional focus on working with international students, especially Asian international students.  
    • If you would like to be considered for this "fourth position" and you have experience and interest in working with international students, please let us know in your cover letter. 
    • Note that the match code will be the same for all 4 internship positions.
  • The MU SCS internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant. http://www.appic.org/Match/Match-Policies
  • The MU SCS internship does not enter into training contracts with academic training programs, and the MU SCS supervisors do not complete evaluations on interns developed by academic training programs.  We will provide a midyear and end of internship progress letter in addition to our evaluation forms.
