All named above are housed at the internship site and all have primary responsibility for professional service delivery at the agency. This faculty is responsible for the development of training programs and materials and is involved in the intern recruitment process. They monitor the caseloads of the interns, with each intern having been assigned two primary supervisors, who are licensed psychologist and responsible for the intern's clinical service. They also oversee the interns' work through group supervisory activities and case conferences.
Other Institutional Supervisors:

Ronald Hopson, Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist. Responsible for individual clinical supervision, case conference supervision. Dr. Hopson is an Associate Professor at Howard University and he provides supervision to UCS interns.
The UCS staff psychologists, together with our accomplished group of adjunct training faculty (psychiatrists as well as psychologists), provide a multidisciplinary learning experience for UCS interns.
The program ensures that each intern has two clinical supervisors, both of whom provide one hour of individual supervision to each assigned intern. Additionally interns receive supervision from a licensed psychologist on each rotation. Interns receive a minimum of 10 hours of group supervision from licensed psychologist and license-eligible staff.
Moreover the supervision provided by the training program has consistently received high ratings from interns upon their completion of the training year. The successful progression of the interns from trainee to credentialed psychology status, in combination with the consistently favorable ratings by trainees of their supervision, is a means of establishing the sufficiency of the program supervision and training.
