Duration of Commitment

The Doctoral Internship in Psychology is a 2,000-hour program. Interns commit at least 40 hours per week for 12 consecutive months. These figures are what most state licensing boards require.

Interns are expected to commit to the training experience with us at CHWS fully. We'll be excited to have you with us and hope for that feeling to be mutual. Interns are expected to anticipate and plan for any conflicting responsibilities like commute time, conference attendance, child/elder care, job start-date, and long-distance move time. Due to our clinical work's nature and pace and the need to be in constant communication with one another, flex time and condensed work weeks are not possible, nor are part-time internships over a two-year period.


The internship extends from August 1, 2022 – July 31, 2023, with the first working day being Monday, August 1, 2022. We ask interns to take a week of vacation at the end of July. Thus, the last day in the office is July 24, 2023.
