Clinical social work interns focus on providing outpatient services, including diagnostic assessment, treatment planning, and individual and group psychotherapy.
Learning is supported through Hamm Clinic’s 36-week seminar series, a weekly one-hour meeting with a social work clinical supervisor, one hour of weekly team consultation, monthly clinical team meetings, and a variety of topic-specific drop-in consult groups.
Hamm Clinic usually fills three social work internships each year through the matching programs at 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 those programs.
The typical internship is a nine-month commitment with a minimum of 16 hours per week of on-site training. Specific internship expectations, time commitment, and training content must be approved by Hamm Clinic, the student, and the university.
