Our program participates in the selection procedure as suggested by the Association of Psychology Internship Centers (APPIC). The internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policies. No person at this training facility will solicit, accept or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant. All interviews are on an invitation-only basis.
As an APPIC member, we use the standard AAPI (APPIC Application for Psychology Internship) on-line application process. When searching or our program on the APPI, please use the program code 1519 or the abbreviated program name (OUHSC-OKCVA Consortium). Each applicant is to submit a complete set of application materials to AAPI online. The application deadline is November 6.** Please note this is a change as of 9/14/20.
A fully completed application set includes;
1. Standard On-line APPIC Application
2. Letter of Interest
3. Three letters of recommendation
4. Official transcripts
In your letter of interest, which is part of the Standard online application, please indicate your funding source preference(s) out of those that we offer. Put this information in bold print near the top of your interest letter. During the interview day, candidates will have a general program orientation, meet with faculty from their funding source preference, and have an opportunity to learn more about the other emphasis areas. Having the exposure to the other emphasis areas will give the candidate the opportunity to learn more about non-preferred rotations, since all trainees are required to have assessment and therapy for adults and children.
Note that we have 3 different funding sources. These funding sources are as follows:
1. Veterans Administration (General) - Match #151912 -4 positions
2. Veterans Administration (Neuropsychology) - Match #151913 -1 position
3. Clinical Neuropsychology - Match #151914 -2 positions
4. Child Clinical Psychology (Center for Child Abuse and Neglect/ Child Study Center) - Match #151915 -1 position
5. Pediatric Psychology/ Children's Hospital of Oklahoma - Match #151917-1 position

You can apply to any combination of the above funding sources. List your desired funding source(s) in bold print near the top of your interest letter. You will only be considered for the funding source(s) that you list in your letter of interest.

We normally notify all applicants selected for an interview by December 7th. We normally complete all interviews before February 1. We have Christmas holidays from December 24th through January 1st during which time we do not schedule visits. We normally schedule site visits at least two weeks in advance.
** IMPORTANT, REGARDING NOTIFICATION**
Due to issues with the notification process, it is highly encouraged for all applicants to check their spam and trash folders daily. Those applicants that have a gmail email account are known to have the most issue with the email notification. If you have an email account that is not gmail or gmail contracted, please submit that account so that we may have an alternate email account in which you may receive your notification of status from us.
