View Point Health welcomes student interns.  What is an Internship?  View Point Health student internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in their field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, and receive academic credit.

We are excited to offer internships for Masters level students in the fields of Social Work and  Counseling.  Interns who are seeking placement in an outpatient program must have an undergraduate degree in counseling, social work, psychology or related degree in a helping profession.

We offer this program to students attending the following universities in Georgia:

  1. Clark Atlanta University
  2. Georgia State University
  3. Mercer University
  4. University of Georgia

At this time we cannot provide an internship to students attending an on-line educational institution.

Both Foundation and Concentration students will find that VPH staff are eager to provide a meaningful internship experience.  However, please note that we have a limited number of slots available for internships.

Students must apply for an internship the semester before the internship begins.  There are several training requirements that must be completed before an internship begins.  Interns will arrange their classes around these trainings. Also, all students must submit to a background check provided by View Point Health.
