In collaboration with the UCLA Psychology Department, UCLA TIES for Families offers a yearlong placement for up to two undergraduate interns through the Fernald Internship Program. Among their responsibilities, interns gain experience in data entry and analysis, observe developmental assessments, and can take on independent projects. Fernald interns are required to allocate five hours a week to their research placement at TIES and will be supervised by UCLA TIES for Families staff during their placement.
The Fernald Intern Program is a selective research program, which offers undergraduates the opportunity to work closely with clinical psychology placements. Along with their placements, interns attend weekly seminars focusing on various areas within child psychopathology research. Once accepted, interns receive course credit by through class enrollment. Application information for the 2016-2017 academic year will be available late summer through the UCLA Psychology Department, please contact the UCLA Psychology Department for more information.
