Didactic experience

Doctoral interns are required to attend weekly two-hour didactic sessions throughout the year. The didactics follow four tracks: assessment/diagnosis; treatment; ethics; and special topics. Particular attention is paid to evidence-based practices. The topics in the individual tracks are selected to align closely with the interns’ accumulation of training and experience during the course of the year.  Approved offsite conferences or courses may also qualify as didactic experience.
