CSB Student Intern Opportunities
Our programs provide internship opportunities for individual and group work in prevention, outpatient, day treatment, and residential treatment settings. Our internship opportunities change frequently, and most of our internships are unpaid. We interview interns at any time during the calendar year, and students should apply at least 4-6 months prior to the start of their placement, whenever possible.
The selection process for internships with the CSB is selective, and more interns apply that we are able to accept. Applicants should expect to participate in at least one interview, and provide reference information. When accepted, interns will go through extensive background checks, be screened or tested for tuberculosis, and participate in training and orientation activities. The cost of these requirements will be borne by the CSB.
Our definition of an “Intern” is an individual completing specific requirements under supervision for academic or credentialing credit. Most CSB internships are unpaid.
There are currently several types of training opportunities in the CSB:
- Undergraduate and graduate level internships in counseling, clinical psychology, social work, health systems management, psychology, substance abuse counseling, and others
- Nursing internships, including Advanced Practice-Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Preceptorship
- Psychiatric Residency
- Clinical Psychology Externship
At this time, Clinical Psychology Post-Doctoral Residency opportunities are not available.
