I loved the amount of responsibility the interns were given throughout the internship. As interns, we assessed individuals of all ages and individually conducted numerous testing protocols including intelligence, personality, ADHD, and ASD measures. I really enjoyed the opportunity to observe sessions of electroconvulsive therapy, attend and discuss weekly case study meetings among Psychologists, and well as sitting in on a full clinical session with a Psychologist.
What I wish was different
I wouldn’t changed anything about this internship, as it provided such a great summer experience. Although, it is an unpaid internship, which is not ideal.
Take advantage of the opportunities this internship offers! Go to case study meetings, meet personally with Psychologists, take as many appointments as possible, and ask for input and advice from your supervisor.
