The Director of Training is responsible for coordinating the application and selection process. Electronic applications are available at the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers
(APPIC), and the Director of Training provides proxy access to the training faculty to review the electronic submissions. One hard copy of each application is printed. All applicants with "readiness" endorsements from their training directors are encouraged to apply.
To be considered for an interview, an intern must have completed a minimum of two practical experiences and exhibit report-writing skills commensurate with current level of training. Skype interviews may be utilized to assist in the ranking process, though on-site interviews are expected unless weather delays impact arrival to LSH. Phone interviews will not be conducted. Applicants are notified on December 15 of his/her interview status via email. Final approval of all candidates is made by the intern selection committee (i.e. the Director of Training/Chair of the Internship, Vice Chair of the Internship, and the remaining internship faculty members). LSH adheres to the procedures established by APPIC for offering psychology internship positions. Written confirmation of an internship offer follows the match process.
If your are matched with our site, LSH will conduct a criminal background check at no cost to you. Applicants who match to our program but do not successfully pass this background check will not be employed as pre-doctoral interns.
The applications of individuals not accepted into the program are kept on file for a period of two years for administrative purposes.
This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking related information from an intern applicant.
