We are thrilled to announce this year’s match results for the Clinical Psychology Internship Program. It has been a remarkably busy interview season; more than 130 applicants came to campus to interview, and we matched with a record number of applications this year. We look forward to welcoming the 24 incoming interns, all of whom are remarkably accomplished, impressively diverse and very excited to join us next year. Here are a few relevant facts about this outstanding group:
- 5 interns have received NIHI F31 NRSA training grants to support their research.
- 2 have received National Science Foundation grants to fund their dissertations.
- 4 speak Spanish fluently (and another speaks Cantonese and Mandarin).
- 2 have earned American Psychological Foundation Elizabeth Koppitz Munsterberg Fellowships.
- 1 is an American Psychological Association Minority Fellow.
In addition to being extremely well-prepared to compete their training at the Consortium’s clinics, this group of interns has been remarkably productive in terms of research. The average number of publications across the interns this year is 9.4 (mode = 7, median = 8), which is a new record high. The qualifications of our applicants continue to astound the Psychology Education Committee, which has the difficult task of reviewing, evaluating and ranking each applicant.
The 2017-2018 intern class is also quite a diverse group. The matched interns will arrive to the Consortium from all parts of the country, including the Southeast (Auburn, USC, USF, UNC, FSU, Southern Mississippi), the upper Midwest (Northwestern, Notre Dame, Case Western, Central Michigan, Illinois Institute of Technology), the Southwest (Texas A&M, Arkansas), the Plains (Kansas, University of South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado), the Mid-Atlantic (Howard, Maryland, UVA) and the West Coast (UCSD/SDSU).
We could not be more pleased to introduce this group to you, and we look forward to welcoming them to campus in August. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks again to the department leadership, the ICCE/Service Line and clinical and research staff who support the program’s achievements. We hope you will be as proud of this group as we are.
