2024-2025 Recruitment Updates – watch this space
We have reviewed all the applications for the 2024-2025 Internship year. Invitations to Open House on January 3, 2024 have been sent out as well as the emails informing those who will not be moving forward in the application process. Please check your spam folder if you haven’t received an email within 24 hours. If you still can’t find your email, please contact the program at firstname.lastname@example.org and they can let you know your results.
Our internship program is accepting applications for this year. It was brought to our attention that that APPIC Directory had incorrectly identified our program as not currently accepting applications for this cycle. Due to this confusion, we have extended our application deadline to be November 5, 2023 at 11:59 EST.
We have updated application information about applying to 2 tracks. For applicants interested in both the General Child Track and the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Track, please carefully review information about these two tracks. We highly recommend selecting the track that best aligns with your background and career goals, and encourage you to apply to only one of these tracks, unless there are exceptional circumstances about your training background.
We are updating our website with the plans to have the final updates completed by end of day September, 15 2023. We will note the updates here in this space. Please check back as we finalize program information during the recruitment season. Our current plan is match a cohort of 16 Psychology Residents (Interns) in 5 training track including:
General Adult Track (n=3)
General Child Track (n=4)
Autism & Developmental Disabilities Track (n=2)
Behavioral Medicine Track (n = 6)
Rehabiliation Neuropsychology Track (n=1)
Greetings from Seattle. I thank you for your interest in the University of Washington School of Medicine’s Psychology Internship Program. We recently celebrated our 62th year of training psychology residents. I hope you will find our website useful in gathering the information you will need to make an informed decision about how our program could accommodate your internship training. Throughout the recruitment season, we may add new information to our website to provide you with the most up to date information about our program. If we make changes to our website, I will provide a summary of those updates on this page. Thus, I encourage you to bookmark this page and to check back throughout the application season to see if there is any updated information that might impact your decision to apply to the program.
OPEN HOUSE 2024 – Wednesday, January 3, 2024 – Save The Date
Based on the feedback from applicants and the recent results from an APPIC study (https://www.appic.org/News-Articles/ArtMID/1931/ArticleID/39/Virtual-Interview-Guidance) on internship recruitment, our program has decided that we will only be conducting a Virtual Open House Day and we will no longer conduct in-person meetings or visits with applicants during recruitment.
We did not make this decision lightly, while we love the richness of in-person visits, we have learned over the past couple of years that we can conduct all our recruitment processes virtually and recruit an excellent group of trainees without having in-person contact for a single day event. Therefore, given the desire to reduce the risks posed by COVID-19 and other seasonal illnesses, to lessen the carbon travel footprint of applicants, to lessen the financial burden to our applicants and to increase equity, we have made a conscious decision to hold only a Virtual Open House event, which is scheduled for January 3, 2024. We plan to notify those who are invited to our Open House no later than December 1, 2023 or earlier.
To treat all applicants equally, we will not be holding any alternative recruitment events. If you choose to visiting Seattle or live in the area, we will not be meeting with any applicants in-person during the recruitment season. Despite our decision, potential applicants who want to travel to Seattle and the greater-Pacific Northwest to see for yourself the beautiful surroundings and our lovely city, we encourage you to do so if you can. If you cannot travel here in-person, we hope that our videos and pictures about this area will excite you about the possibly of living in this beautiful city and the opportunities to travel to the mountains or ocean while living here, check out this video.
