Prior to applying to internship, we hope all students will have achieved the following benchmarks over the course of their graduate training:
|Aspirational Benchmarks||Minimum Benchmarks|
|500-700 Direct contact clinical hours||Below 500 may cause concern for internships, and for most students, above 700 may have diminishing returns for internship purposes. (These hours include both psychotherapy and assessment hours).|
|5-8 Integrated assessment reports||100 hours (~5 integrated assessment reports)|
|5 or more publications (3 of which are peer-reviewed)||1 publication|
|5 or more presentations||4 presentations|
These are targets on average - individual students will have different training goals, and should adjust their targets in discussion with mentors.
These benchmarks are derived from data from peer institutions and clinical science internship applications.
