Dear Prospective Applicant,
Thank you for considering the Drexel University Counseling Center for your predoctoral internship. This past training year, the Drexel University Counseling Center was one of several training sites through the Immaculata University Consortium, an APPIC-approved member. We are pleased to become an independent APPIC site this year, and are very excited to offer two full-time intern positions for the 2014-2015 training year. Drexel University offers a unique academically rigorous program, providing undergraduate students with up to 18 months of professional experience before graduation. Drexel University uses a quarter system, and most students attend a five-year undergraduate program. The Drexel culture and pace is reflected in the needs of the counseling center, and potential predoctoral interns will find a culturally diverse, rich training experience in a well-utilized center. Interns are expected to conduct short and long-term individual therapy, couples and group therapy, as well as conducting intakes, participation in the on-call rotation, walk-in hours, consultation, outreach and workshops. There may be opportunities to provide supervision to practicum students, as well.
Drexel’s counseling center is committed to fostering the growth of previously acquired competencies and personal interests, to facilitate the development of a broad range of new clinical competencies using clinical theory and empirical research, and to support and nurture professional growth for independent practice. I applaud your commitment to the advancement of your degree, and understand that the decision for internship placement is not one to be taken lightly. We hope that you will find our website to be helpful in determining if our site is a good match for you.
Again, thank you for your interest in our training program. We wish you the very best in your search and we look forward to an exciting 2014-2015 training year. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions.
