Ten graduate students from the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology (CCSP) at UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School have earned prestigious internships across the country to complete their work for a Ph.D. Each year, students in their fourth year of doctoral studies compete nationally for APA-Accredited pre-doctoral internships to complete the applied portion of their degrees.  As in years past, this year was extremely competitive with over 4,000 students vying for positions at fewer than 3,000 sites. Associate Professor Steve Smith, Director of Clinical Training, notes, “I’m really proud that CCSP students continue to get great internships. It’s a big testament to their preparation and training.”

The ten students and their sites are:

Courtney Bolton: The Help Group
Jessie (JB) Bradshaw: UC San Diego Med/VA Consortium
Kristin Conover: USC CAPS
Robert Duff: Kaiser San Diego
Sholeh Mireshghi: Institute of Multicultural Counseling and Education Services
Jennica Rebelez: USC Children’s Hospital
Christine (Lodi) Schock: Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center
Reza Shahroozi: St. John’s Child and Family Development Center
Katie Spaventa-Vancil: College of William and Mary
Ana Thomat: SUNY Upstate Syracuse Medical University

All the students took part in the APPIC Internship Matching Program that places applicants into psychology internship positions at training sites in the United States and Canada.
The Match is sponsored and supervised by the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).
