Students first complete a semester of practicum, where they work with clients for a few hours each week. Then, students complete two more intensive semesters of internship, usually at the same site as their practicum.
Internship sites include:
The Department is proud to host an internship at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, the first counseling internship at a VA hospital in the country.
We have a premier internship at the Cleveland Clinic with rotations at the outpatient psychology and psychiatry center, employee assistance program, and pain management center.
Students participate in finding a site that fits their career interests and competencies. Students are provided with an on-site supervisor, a John Carroll supervisor, as well as an instructor in the internship course. Use of video recording and live observation is encouraged.
