Abstract

Changing patterns of funding may require calculation of the real cost of services performed by psychology interns, including that of supportive educational and supervisory efforts. At a center with 10 interns and intensive individual supervision, the cost was approximately $13,000 per year per intern for approximately 800 hrs of direct service--an outcome that compares favorably to salaries of psychological technicians.
