Health Service Psychology Trainee Dismissal Study

Team: Aashna Aggarwal, Amani Kahlil, and Krista Robbins

This is a qualitative interview study in order to understand trainees' perspectives in the dismissal process. 

If you are a current or former doctoral student from an APA-accredited Health Service Psychology program who has been dismissed from a predoctoral practicum and/or internship site, please consider participating in our qualitative study regarding trainee perspectives on dismissal from clinical practicum and internship (Purdue IRB-2021-180).


To qualify for the study, you must:

1) be a student, or have been a student within the last 7 years, from a PhD/PsyD APA-accredited Health Service Psychology program (i.e., Clinical Psychology, Counseling Psychology, School Psychology, or combined programs)

2) have had a premature termination with your practicum or internship site due to potential concerns with your competence


Each participant will be compensated $30 at the end of their one-hour semi-structured interview, which will be focused on their experiences at their training site, their understanding of the dismissal process, and the impact on their professional development after dismissal.


If you are interested in the study, please fill out a brief interest survey below.
