Students may accrue clinical hours in the context of research activities. In order to count these hours toward the JDP’s required minimum of 500 clinical hours before internship application, to report these hours in the APPIC application when applying for internship, and to ultimately have these hours count toward licensure requirements, the hours must be supervised by a licensed psychologist with a faculty appointment at either SDSU or UCSD who is affiliated with the JDP. Supervisors must be in good standing both with the licensure board and the academic institution of their faculty appointment.
Procedure: Prior to the initiation of research activities for clinical hours, students will submit a form to request approval. Approval from the JDP must be obtained before hours can be accrued.
