Typically, Social Work interns are expected to be with the agency for at least nine months–usually meeting the requirements for practicum and internship experiences for most universities. Social Work interns will carry a case load of approximately 5 to 15 clients for individual therapy during the internship and will often participate in group treatment experiences with a licensed clinician as a co-therapist. Clinical internships through MOPS often result in full time employment with the agency upon graduation.
Applicants for the Social Work internship program must be within ten months of graduating from an accredited Masters Degree program, must pass a background and drug screening, and must evidence the potential to develop exceptional clinical skill.
