COVID-19 Update

HHCI is still accepting interns for the Fall 2021/Spring 2022 placement season. Currently, our team works in the office seeing clients virtually. HHCI is not accepting remote interns, and student will be required on campus for the entire 19 hours of their weekly internship.  HHCI has safety procedures and guidelines in place for staff and new hires.

My internship at HHCI has surpassed every expectation I had for what I imagined my clinical field placement would be. It has been amazing to work with the clinical team who are incredibly supportive, friendly, and open to sharing their insights and expertise. I have also gained invaluable experience through connecting clients with community resources, managing my own case load, and working with clients virtually as we navigate through COVID-19. I am very grateful for my experience at HHCI and honestly could not imagine a better learning environment for me to practice my clinical skills.

If I could pick two words to describe 2020, I would use flexibility and adapting. My experience at HHCI has been all of the above for my clinical experience. It has been really neat to be a part of a team who emphasizes the ability to adapt to continue providing services and resources for our clients virtually through telebehavioral health daily. Operating virtually has been an experience and exposure area I had no anticipation for when I started my clinical rotations and now it has opened the door to growth where I least expected it. I’m grateful to have in-person clinical team meetings and supervision; both which are helpful in navigating my intern experience and also for building an awesome team and work culture to be a part of.
