IMPORTANT NOTICE: We regret to inform you that SARHC is not accepting interns for the 2017-2018 internship year due to the recent changes in healthcare. We are requesting inactive status from APA. If there are any questions, please contact Dr. Richard Sylvester, Director of Psychology Training and Internship Program, at







There are three full-time positions for the internship.


  • All coursework must be completed (except for dissertation) before the formal start date of internship program on August 1st.
  • The internship prefers but does not require interns to come from APA approved programs.
  •  800 hours total (assessment, intervention, & supervision) of psychologist supervised practicum experience, completed as a part of the doctoral curriculum prior to beginning the internship.
  • Completed APPIC application for Psychology Internship (AAPI). This document is available for completion through the APPIC Website:
  •  Three letters of recommendation, preferably from professors or clinical supervisors familiar with one’s work.
  • Graduate transcripts.




Our training year begins on August 1 and ends on August 15 of the following year. The internship is a year and two weeks, which permits current interns to participate in the training/orientation process for incoming doctoral interns. Due to this extended time, interns are provided two weeks of personal time during the internship year.
