UMKC Counseling Services offers several clinical training opportunities for students enrolled in masters or doctoral level clinical or counseling psychology programs. Our center offers two full-time doctoral internship positions as part of our training program that is accredited by the American Psychological Association.
Our site also offers between 5 – 9 advanced practicum placements or master level internship positions. These opportunities begin each year in August and are between 16 – 20 hours per week. Advanced practicum students and masters interns train in the fall and spring semesters but also have the opportunity to continue into the summer semester if desired. We have welcomed candidates from many programs within the Kansas City region (for example: UMKC, KU, Avila and Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences) as well as numerous programs outside of this geographic area. We welcome you to explore the other information on our website about the training opportunities available at UMKC.
