IPS is pleased to announce that 23 MS and MS+ students have been placed in externships for the coming year. These externships include community mental health centers, child and family centers, substance abuse treatment programs, school settings, homeless shelters, and specialized programs for impaired individuals.

“Externships are a critical part of a student’s clinical experience.
