Abstract

Discusses the application process for clinical psychology internships, focusing particularly on the areas of applications, interviews and notification. The authors offer suggestions to address problems with these areas of the application process. Regarding applications, devising a standard application form to be used by all programs would alleviate much of the burden students must now handle. An ethical code needs to be drawn up defining appropriate interviewing procedure and conduct. The solution for the difficulties involved in notification is the implementation of a computerized matching program, such as that used for medical internships. The authors suggest that these are major changes and would require much effort and expense to actualize, but they sincerely feel they would greatly improve the application procedure, making it both more efficient and less painful.
