RIC Social Work Students Focused on Integrated Behavioral Healthcare Seeking Placements 

  • 02 Mar 2020

The Rhode Island College School of Social Work has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration for the Rhode Island Integrated Care Education (RIICE) Project. The award will be used to increase the number of master's level social workers who graduate from the Rhode Island College School of Social Work with specialized training and experience in providing integrated behavioral health services within primary care settings. 

RIC has 15 RIICE 2nd year MSW students that need to be placed in integrated care placements that provide behavioral health services within a primary care setting:

  • The internship would begin in May 2020 and go until May 2021.
  • Students will be placed during the summer for 12 hours a week for 10 weeks. During fall and spring, students will be placed for 16 hours a week.
  • Students are required to have 2 hours of supervision per week. The first hour must be individual, face-to-face with an MSW from an accredited program; this supervisor must have two years' post-masters experience. The second hour can be with the same or different team member, either individual or group format.
  • If interested in accepting students, please contact us so we can arrange a time to talk about the next steps. The deadline to place students is the end of March 2020.
