Trainee Program

Our LEND program is a year-long graduate training program that occurs at two levels, indicated by the amount of training hours received. All disciplines and fields of study are welcome. In past cohorts, disciplines include public health, public policy, social welfare, psychology, psychiatry, internal medicine, pediatrics, special education, law, and neurology.

Training Levels

Medium Term

Typically, medium-term trainees are those who are unable to take all of the required courses of a long-term trainee and/or they cannot commit to the capstone project requirement.

Long Term

Long-Term trainees are required to take one course each quarter (fall, winter, spring) over a 1-year period.  Clinical hours and a capstone project is also required. The selection process for incoming long-term trainees is competitive. The applicant’s discipline, interest in the population being served, letters of recommendation, and interview will be taken into consideration.
