The training program participates in the APPIC computerized matching program. Applicants must obtain an Applicant Agreement and register for the Match in order to be eligible to match to our programs.
Applicants can download an Applicant Agreement from the Matching Program website at www.natmatch.com/psychint or request that an Agreement be mailed by contacting NMS directly. All applicants are required to submit their application online at www.appic.org.
During the review of application materials and interview, supervisors look for applicants to have approximately 1,000 hours of supervised practicum experience. The training program participates in the National Matching Service and we use the standardized online APPIC application form. Faculty reviews each application and indicates whether the applicant should be extended an invitation for an interview. Interviews are extended to those applicants who meet the selection criteria.
On-site interviews are a prerequisite for further consideration for the training program. During the half-day long interview, applicants (a) meet with faculty members from both training tracks, (b) meet with at least one other current intern, and (c) tour the facility with opportunities for them to ask questions about the facility and clinical programs. After applicants are interviewed and references are checked, faculty meet as a group to develop their rank order list. Applicants are ranked according to the faculty’s assessment of the candidate’s “fit” with the program.
Interns are recruited for two separate tracks within the Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress/Psychiatric Mental Health Program Doctoral Internship (PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PROGRAM DOES NOT APPEAR IN THE APPIC DIRECTORY BUT CAN BE ACCESSED THROUGH THE MATCH PORTAL):
