Salary & Benefits

Independence Health System offers experiential training supported by supervision, didactics, and seminars. Interns spend 40 hours per week at their sites, for a total of 2000 hours. Of those 2000 hours, at least 500 hours will be direct service. In addition to direct service, interns attend supervision, staff meetings, didactics/seminars, and have time to complete paperwork/documentation. Each internship site provides information on the specific training experiences they offer.

This collaborative training time also includes time for peer support between interns.
