VA Puget Sound Health Care System (Seattle & American Lake)

Internship Programs

The doctoral internship programs at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Seattle and American Lake Division are fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association.  Doctoral students in APA, CPA and/or another VA recognized accrediting body (e.g., PCSAS) Clinical or Counseling Psychology programs are eligible to apply. All coursework required for the doctoral degree must be completed prior to the start of the internship year, as well as any qualifying, comprehensive, or preliminary doctoral examinations. We prefer candidates whose doctoral dissertations will be completed, or nearly completed, before the internship. However, because internship is part of the doctoral training requirement, interns must not be granted their degree by their academic institution prior to successful completion of the internship year.  Applicants must meet Eligibility Requirements for all VA Psychology Training Programs, available at: www.psychologytraining.va.gov/eligibility.asp (these will need to be verified via the TQCVL process prior to the start of internship, see: https://www.va.gov/OAA/TQCVL.asp for details).
