Internship Admissions, Support, and Initial Placement Data

The 2023 APPIC Match Policies are available at the "Match Policies" page on the APPIC website.

Counseling Services at the University of Oregon (APA-accredited) has decided to pause admissions to our internship program for 2024–2025 due to staff changes. This year and next will serve as an opportunity to prioritize our current trainees and further develop our training program for the future. This will be a temporary pause in providing internship training opportunities next year, with plans to accept applicants and resume the internship program for the 2025–2026 training year.

Please feel free to email us at if you have questions about the internship process.
