You're the Future of Mental Health
It's our mission to provide outstanding training for the next generation of mental health professionals. Each semester, we invite interns from various types of academic programs (clinical and counseling psychology, counseling, social work, and psychiatry) from within and outside the University of Arizona to join the CAPS Training Program and CAPS Doctoral Internship Program (CDIP).
CAPS Doctoral Internship Program
CAPS is currently building a doctoral internship for psychologists-in-training! The CAPS Doctoral Internship Program (CDIP) will be a full-time, paid position that fulfills the internship requirement for students completing doctoral degrees in psychology. Interns will be immersed in a fast-paced, integrated university health setting at a large, diverse, public university where they develop skills to emerge as excellent health-service psychologists.
CDIP will welcome its first cohort in 2024.
CAPS Extern Training Experience
Our externs work alongside licensed staff serving students in our vibrant, diverse, fast-paced, interdisciplinary university counseling center. Clinical externs receive training across a variety of modalities, including individual and group therapy, psychoeducational workshops, initial visits, outreach, and more.
CAPS also offers Advocacy Training available with our Survivor Advocates team. Learn more about training with our Survivor Advocates.

Great clinical experience, good supervisors, lots of support.
