For Students of Color
Hamm Clinic is committed to increasing the number of providers of color in the mental health field. The Hamm Horizons Clinical Social Work Internship is a learning opportunity specifically for students of color.
The internship focuses on provision of outpatient services, including diagnostic assessment, treatment planning, and individual and group psychotherapy.
Learning is supported through:
- Hamm Clinic’s 36-week seminar series,
- One hour weekly of individual supervision by a social work clinical supervisor,
- One hour of weekly team consultation,
- Monthly clinical team meetings, and
- Various topic-specific drop-in consult groups.
The typical internship is a 9-month commitment with a minimum of 16 hours per week of on-site training. Interns receive a modest stipend.
Two Hamm Horizons Social Work Internships are available annually through the local matching programs of the University of Minnesota, Augsburg, St. Catherine’s, St. Thomas, and St. Mary’s Schools of Social Work. At this time, we only accept applicants from these universities.
Specific expectations regarding time and training content must be approved by Hamm Clinic, the student, and their university.
