Overview of the Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology

Training Year: July 21, 2025–July 17, 2026

Butler University’s Counseling and Consultation Services (CCS) offers an APA-accredited doctoral internship program in Health Service Psychology that provides a core of supervised training experiences in a university counseling center.  These experiences are designed to enhance the intern’s development as a health service psychologist and generalist clinician. Successful graduates of the program demonstrate a high level of competence and versatility in the provision of mental health services.

At CCS, interns participate in individual and group therapy, assessment, consultation, outreach, crisis intervention, intakes and supervision of Master’s- and Doctoral-level practicum students.  One day per week will be devoted exclusively to training activities. These include weekly case staffing, didactic seminars, intern lunch/support, outreach supervision, group supervision, diversity themed discussions, and supervision of supervision.

Time is allotted for research relevant to population needs and completion of interns’ dissertations. In addition to dissertation time, interns collaborate with each other on a research project pertinent to CCS.
