*Consultation/outreach activities average .5 hours a week (e.g., you may do approximately two hour-long outreaches in a month).

**Averaging more than 40 hours a week is necessary because interns receive 5 weeks of vacation, and are required by APA to accrue a total of 2000 hours in order to complete internship.

Interns meet with the Training Director prior to each semester to discuss training goals and scheduling for the upcoming semester. In addition to constructing the ongoing training goals, the Training Director assists interns in monitoring their progress toward meeting the requirement of 2,000 hours of on-site activities, including 500 hours of clinical direct services, for successful completion of the internship.
