Psychology internships give students the chance to work with real patients in the field—invaluable experience for those aspiring to become psychology professionals. Interns benefit from the didactic and experiential learning that arises from working onsite at a Veterans Affairs Office, a school, or a private clinic.
While on the job, psychology interns develop entry-level skills such as performing comprehensive assessments and providing treatment based on evidence and context.
Because psychology professionals operate under a code of conduct to ensure safety and ethicality, internships also train students to act as part of a professional community. Interns learn to become advocates for their patients when working with other mental health professionals, for example. They also provide consultation and incorporate professional resources into their practice.
Having practical experience directs psychology interns into a variety of careers. This entails becoming a resident counselor at universities, mental health clinics, and hospitals, or working in criminal law as a forensic psychologist, or promoting holistic health as a sports psychologist. Psychology internships are also extremely valuable for students entering or working through a graduate program.
