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.
