Social Work Internship Program
To provide a formal training program designed to give social work interns an opportunity to build on their military social work skills. This training program is designed to enhance social work interns in becoming a Social Work Officer assigned to either a Brigade Behavioral Health Section, Area Medical Support Company or a Combat and Operational Stress Control Detachment. This training will expose the non- independently licensed active duty social worker to key areas of practice within the military social work career field. It is a great opportunity for interns to refine, reinforce, and apply concepts and skills learned during their Master of Social Work (MSW) program. The intern benefits from an experience that teaches him/her about social work, the military culture, and provides preparation for independent clinical licensure.
To provide an educational bridge between graduate social work education and independent social work practice creating versatile and well-rounded social work officers.
