Recruitment & Selection Procedure
- The Psychology Internship Training Committee reviews all applications.
- Approximately 30 applicants will be offered an on-site interview.
- Interns invited for interviews will be informed of rotation combinations planned and asked to specify rotation combinations for which they seek consideration.
- Applicants will interview with supervisors of services or programs for which they are being considered.
- Interviews are held on three different days in January of 2015.
- Following interviews, training supervisors will rank applicants.
- The selection and notification process will follow APPIC Match guidelines.
- Interns accepted for the 2015-2016 training year will need to satisfactorily pass a pre-employment BCI/MIS criminal background check. Intermountain Healthcare's employment application (completed after the APPIC Match and before beginning internship) includes an inquiry about criminal history (felony and misdemeanor convictions, pending charges, pleas in abeyance). Applicants not completing this section or not answering truthfully will not receive offers of employment. The existence of a conviction does not automatically disqualify an individual from eligibility for employment.
- All employment offers will be made contingent upon completion of a drug test with a passing result (the drug screen is conducted prior to or upon beginning the internship). A failed test disqualifies individuals for employment for a period of twelve months from the test date. Presence of illegal drugs and/or metabolites, and/or the presence of prescription drugs and/or metabolites for which the tested individual does not have a current prescription, would be considered a failed test.
- This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person in this training program will solicit, accept or use ranking-related information from any internship applicant.
- Minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. Primary Children's Hospital is a non-discriminatory / Affirmative Action Employer.
