Social Work Internship

 

The Multidisciplinary Center (MDC) currently offers two, full-time, field placement opportunities for graduate level clinical social work students in the Spring and Fall semesters. The internship provides direct clinical experiences at the Multidisciplinary Center and within school districts under the supervision of a licensed clinical social worker on staff. At the MDC, interns receive training and direct experience conducting clinical assessments, including the biopsychosocial, with parents and guardians as part of a child or adolescent’s diagnostic evaluation completed by a psychologist. Evaluations primarily focus on assessing for Attention Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Learning Disabilities. Interns also receive training on providing school-based individual and group mental health services. Interns are assigned to a school and manage a personal caseload of students. This provides interns with the direct experience of conducting intake and risk assessments, developing treatment plans, monitoring client progress and outcome, completing clinical documentation, and the termination process.  

The Multidisciplinary Evaluation and Consulting Center is an equal opportunity university-based training program committed to diversity and inclusion in all its educational and training activities.  We welcome and strongly encourage applications from all qualified candidates, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, veteran’s or marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other protected group status.

Stipends are not available at this time, but mileage is reimbursed for required travel to school districts. Interns are required to pass a Level II fingerprinting and background screening for this field placement; the cost of this screening is covered by the MDC.
