Basic Requirements for Internship

Basic Requirements

For the Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology

Applicants for the doctoral internship must have completed all course requirements for the doctoral degree prior to beginning their doctoral internship. The doctoral degree must be from an APA/CPA-accredited program or from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. They must also have a minimum of 400 practicum hours, with 25 being in psychological assessment.


Applicants must submit a completed APPIC Application for Psychology Internship (AAPI) online by November 10. Applications can be accessed from the APPIC website. Georgia Tech appointments conform to a variety of requirements, including legal eligibility for employment in the U.S. (sometimes called the I-9 requirement) and a background check that verifies that educational credentials are valid and that candidates have no criminal or other record that would preclude employment in the Institute's judgment. A drug screening must also be passed. These are conducted following the APPIC Match, but the outcome of these background checks have the potential to preclude appointment. If you have any questions please contact the Director of Training at
