SA 117 - Clinical Internship II

Credit Hours: 3

The second semester of clinical internship requires an additional 150 hours minimum of practical clinical experience. This semester generally requires the student to perform more hands-on, actual treatment, including individual case management and group therapy responsibilities. Supervised seminars are conducted weekly during scheduled class time. Admission into internship will not only be based on academic readiness but professional and experiential considerations by the instructor. A student that has completed all the academic requirements may not be permitted to take the internship based on the instructor approval. The instructor will determine the student's level of readiness, appropriateness, performance expectations, and overall suitability for the entry into the course.
