Internships/Practicums

Compass Health Network is dedicated to pursuing educational enrichment, collaboration and study, and offers numerous opportunities for internships, practicums, preceptorships, and clinical rotations. These opportunities are mentored experiences in which a practicing therapist, counselor, or clinical supervisor volunteers to give personal instruction, training, and supervision to a student. This experience offers the student an opportunity to get to know the particular field of study, understand the realities of the career, discover likes and dislikes, and to experience a workplace setting.
