The second part of the one-year master’s programme (from period 2 onwards) is devoted to arranging and conducting a research internship and a clinical Internship for students choosing the clinical option. For the clinical internship students conduct a 13-week fulltime clinical internship in an approved setting. The clinical internship can be conducted in conjunction with the research internship or separately. The aim of the clinical internship is to provide an introduction to the organisation and practice of health care, as well as basic experience in clinical diagnosis and therapeutic interventions. Students conducting a clinical internship are required to receive supervision at Maastricht University and write a clinical activities report as a result of the internship. A detailed guide on clinical internships can be found on EleUM > Students Master Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience. Although not required to do so by the master’s programme, students who wish to meet Dutch requirements for admission to advanced clinical training programmes are advised to fulfil the admission criteria for the GZ-opleiding.
