Counseling and Psychological Services

Sample Intern Schedule

Interns develop a schedule each semester that incorporates direct service delivery (typically accounting for about 40 - 45% of time at CAPS), other professional activities, training, supervision, and administrative tasks. Interns are encouraged to develop a schedule that reflects their unique training needs and goals. The Training Director is available for consultation regarding schedules and approves interns’ proposed schedules.

The following sample schedule provides a guide that may be used by interns, while acknowledging that there is an ebb and flow to university counseling center work that requires flexibility (e.g. an intern may spend 3 hours on outreach one week followed by two weeks with no outreach related activities).
