IUPUI CAPS offers an advanced practicum experience for 3-5 graduate students each year. Students enrolled in accredited doctoral or master's level academic programs that lead to licensure as a mental health clinician  (e.g., LMHC, LCSW, HSPP) are eligible to apply.

The following are minimum qualifications for applicants:

  1. Current enrollment in an accredited doctoral or master’s level academic program that leads to licensure as a mental health clinician.
  2. Prior mental health experience (this includes relevant work/volunteer experience). Doctoral students must complete at least one therapy/counseling practicum prior to placement at CAPS.
  3. Placement duration of 3 consecutive semesters, unless otherwise prohibited by a student’s academic program

To Apply:

  1. Please submit a current CV and cover letter.
