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.

Program Overview

The US Army Social Work Internship Program (SWIP) is the Army’s formal training program for preparing recent Master’s in Social Work graduates for advanced clinical social work practice with Soldiers and Families. The goal of producing highly qualified military social workers capable of independent clinical practice in multiple practice areas which include the Family Advocacy Program, Social Work Leadership and Management, Outpatient Behavioral Health, Addictions Medicine, and a wide array of electives.

SWIP interns rotate through four major rotations and are provided supervision by rotational supervisors at every site. Interns will have a weekly supervision session with the SWIP Director of Training to provide continuity of supervision and ensure all requirements are being met for their state licensure. Once a week the SWIP program has didactics explore a wide variety of topics and to continue the education that they may not have learned in the MSW program. Didactics are also designed to expose interns to other topics that they may not be able to experience in their rotations.

2022 TRICARE Copayment Increase

Congress and the Department of Defense (DoD) worked together on these changes, which Congress passed into law as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018. These changes are part of a larger effort to generate discretionary savings for the DoD to fund improvements in military readiness and to modernize the TRICARE health benefit.

As of 1 January 2022, TRICARE pharmacy copayments will change for all beneficiaries, except active duty service members (ADSMs), dependent survivors of ADSMs, and medically retired service members and their dependents.

Copays for Tier 1 generic formulary drugs, Tier 2 brand-name formulary drugs, and Tier 3 non-formulary drugs are increasing at home delivery and retail points of service.The copayment increases for retail pharmacies and home delivery range from $1 to $8 depending on formulary status.

Military pharmacies remain the lowest cost pharmacy options for TRICARE beneficiaries, who have the option to get generic and brand-name drugs for $0 copayment.

New Copayments
