Clinic Practicum Trainee

Our Clinical Psychology Practicum experience is designed for highly motivated undergraduate students who are studying psychology at university and/or in the process of applying to graduate school.

We offer practicum training to students at our San Francisco and Peninsula clinics.

The commitment is 5-10 hours per week for 9-12 months. Our practicum trainees engage in a variety of activities to understand our work, service delivery, and see how a private outpatient pediatric clinic operates. Trainees observe and assist our small team of psychologists and therapists during group therapy sessions. Trainees may attend didactics and group supervision meetings.  Trainees also help with program evaluation and community outreach projects at Seesaw.

Candidate Requirements:

  1. Only highly motivated students who are interested in pursuing graduate school in clinical/counseling/school psychology may apply. Sophomores to Seniors are highly encouraged to apply.
  2. Must be Mac and tech savvy.
  3. Passionate about psychology.
