*The amount of time actually required to prepare for activities (e.g., receiving supervision, providing supervision, developing a program) or write effective clinical notes is quite idiosyncratic. The numbers provided here assumes a level of training and experience in these areas typical for the average intern.
**Hours represent the average number of research/professional development hours logged by interns. Given other responsibilities during peak times, interns typically choose to bank research hours and use them during less intense clinical times (e.g. intersessions, summer, etc.). When research hours are saved for non-peak times, weekly hours worked are much closer to 40/week.
***By the nature of the University calendar, the Counseling Center’s student service demands ebb and flow. This reflects peak hours during first and second semesters; intersession and summer hours are significantly lower.
