    Externship

    Child Clinical Psychology Externship for Advanced Doctoral Students

    Summary: Several advanced externship positions are available in Child Clinical Psychology for the 2022-2023 training year at Quince Orchard Psychotherapy (QOP).

    QOP is a large private practice in Rockville, MD that provides affordable, accessible, research informed counseling and assessment services to children, adolescents, and adults.

    The externship includes both therapy and assessment experiences. Externs will carry an outpatient therapy caseload of 5-7 clients per week and complete 1-2 psychological evaluations per month. Externs with specific interests can tailor their experiences to receive specialized training in autism spectrum conditions, or ERP for OCD.

    Opportunities for co-leading groups may be available. Externs will be exposed to many different aspects of working in a successful private practice. One hour of individual supervision in therapy, one hour of individual supervision in assessment, and one hour of group supervision will be provided each week. Externs are invited to participate in a variety of workshops and continuing education events at the practice. Opportunities for paid psychology associate positions will be available after the first year of externship.

    Qualifications: Master’s degree in clinical or counseling psychology required. Must have master’s degree by June 2022. Prior practicum experience in therapy and experience with cognitive and personality instruments is required.

    Special Note: Students will need to obtain an NPI number and become a registered psychology associate with the state of Maryland. We will cover the costs associated with the initial registration of being a psychology associate, including the cost for the student to take the jurisprudence test once. We will also assist in helping the student obtain an NPI number and complete paperwork for becoming a psychology associate.

    Time Requirements: 16 hours/week.

    Required day for externship: Fridays preferred as one of the two days expected to be on site.

    Number of positions being offered: 4-6
