Applying

The Johns Hopkins Counseling Center is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).  All internship applications must be submitted using the APPI Online system, available via www.appic.org (click on "APPI Online").  Our application deadline for the 2015/2016 internship year is November 1, 2014.

All AAPI Online applications must include:

  1. A cover letter which addresses the applicant's interest in the JHU Counseling Center internship, expectations of the internship, and career goals.
  2. A Curriculum Vitae.
  3. The actual application (which includes essays and the DCT's (applicant's departmental Director of Clinical Training) verification of eligibility and readiness).
  4. All graduate transcripts.
  5. Three letters of recommendation from persons who are familiar with the applicant's professional and/or academic performance (two of which should be from on-site clinical supervisors).  It is our preference that recommenders use the APPIC Form for Letters of Recommendation available on the AAPI website, but we will accept traditional letters if that is not possible.

Applications will be reviewed by the members of the Center's training staff.  A subset of applications based on this review will be contacted starting in December for an interview in January.  Interviews are generally face-to-face, but interviews by telephone or video-conference can be accommodated.  Applicants who are interviewed may then be rank ordered for the APPIC Internship Matching Program.  For further information contact Matthew Torres, Ph.D. (Director of Training) at mtorres@jhu.edu .

Qualifications of Applicants

Applicants must be enrolled in an APA-approved doctoral program in counseling or clinical psychology.  They should have completed all required course work, practicum experiences, and comprehensive examinations prior to the starting date of the internship.  The Counseling Center values diversity and individual differences, so we encourage applicants who represent various forms of diversity (e.g., racial, ethnic, religious, sexual orientation) to apply.
