Field Placements, Practicums and Internships in Psychology

To gain skills in the practice of clinical or counseling psychology, students are required to have hands-on practical experience using psychological interventions. These hands-on experiences take many different forms, including field placements, practical internships, residency and supervised practice. Visit the Field Placements, Practicums and Internship page for more information on these opportunities.

Mentor Program

Mentoring in the field of psychology is a nurturing and supportive process in which psychologists connect to provide guidance, support and encouragement.  Mentoring can be face to face or by phone and the relationship can be either short-term or for a longer time frame. The psychologist mentor serves as a role model, resource and advocate, and stimulates the mentee to develop the skills needed for work in the field of psychology, including practice in private, medical, forensic, academic and community settings. Learn more about mentoring with OPA.
