Qualifications and Selection Process:
The DDEAMC Clinical Psychology Internship Program is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). Our Program Code Number is 123611. We follow all APPIC policies and procedures for internship selection. Only applicants who participate in the APPIC match can be matched at DDEAMC’s internship program. The APPIC Application for Psychology Internship (AAPI) is available through http://www.appic.org/.

Interns will become active duty officers. Applicants must be citizens of the United States and meet criteria to become Army Officers in addition to other requirements for the internship. Qualified applicants come from APA-accredited Clinical or Counseling psychology doctoral programs. Applicants are selected through the APPIC match, but also must be selected for service in the Army through the Army Board Selection Process.

After the initial APPI applications are reviewed by the DDEAMC faculty and CPIP Director of Training, applicants will be contacted for an on-site interview. Interviews are conducted by invitation only. For applicants not able to attend an on-site interview, telephone interviews will be conducted. The Army Psychology Internship Selection Board typically meets in January. The Board reviews application packets and discuses applicant qualifications. Final selections are made using the APPIC match process.
