The PGSP-Stanford Psy.D. Consortium requires all students to complete a minimum two-thousand (2,000) hour supervised professional internship. These hours fulfill the pre-doctoral internship required by the State of California and other states (subject to individual state licensing boards), among other requirements for eligibility to sit for the licensing examination. This portion of the curriculum is intended to ensure that every student receives practical experience germane to his/her development as a professional clinical psychologist.
Effective Fall 2012, it is the PGSP-Stanford Psy.D. Consortium’s policy that students may apply only to APA-accredited pre-doctoral internships. Under certain circumstances, students may be granted an exemption to apply to APPIC-member only internships on a case-by-case basis; approval is contingent upon the student's circumstances as well as the program's ability to ensure that the internship site of interest meets the quality training standards set forth by APA.
