Financial Support and Benefits
Funding is available in two formats:
- Stipends ofapproximately$25,000 each are provided for six of the seven tracks (Behavioral Medicine-Transplant. CIDD, Clinical Child-Community, Clinical-Child-Pediatric, and TEACCH). Health insurance is also provided as a benefit for these interns.
- Two stipends of approximately $27,000 each are available for the two Clinical Forensic internship positions, which require half-time assignment at the Federal Correction Institute at Butner, North Carolina. Health insurance is not provided as a benefit for these two positions; the interns receive a larger stipend and are encouraged to use the additional funding to purchase health insurance through their universities.
All interns are provided with professional liability insurance at no cost. Thirty days of leave time are provided; these include vacation and sick leave, professional leave, and 11 major holidays observed by the University. Interns are eligible for the UNC One Card, which permits access to University libraries and use as a debit card for UNC Student Stores and other services. Interns have access to UNC facilities and are eligible for a free pass to non-revenue sporting events. There is no charge for the bus service within Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Each intern also has a professional development budget of $250 for travel to conferences, books or other relevant materials or activities.
