RAMS aims to recruit a diverse group and, for academic year 2012/13, the agency did just that! The intern and trainee group represents graduate programs of over 10 schools – California Institute of Integral Studies; Alliant International University/California School of Professional Psychology; Georgia State University; San Francisco State University; Smith College; University of California, San Francisco; and The Wright Institute, just to name a few. And, to reflect the diverse languages of the client community, over 15 languages can be spoken by the group including Cantonese, Hindi, Korean, Mandarin, Malay, Mongolian, Russian, Spanish, and many more. The interns and trainees also come to RAMS in different stages of their educational training with majority currently in their masters programs while others are pre-doctoral interns (RAMS National Asian American Psychology Training Center has been continuously accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1980), post-doctoral fellows, and post-masters interns in various healthcare disciplines – Psychology; Marriage & Family Therapy; Nursing; and Social Work. RAMS even has different training focuses such as clinical and research.
RAMS actively retains high quality licensed clinicians to provide clinical supervision to the interns and trainees (many who are former RAMS interns and/or trainees themselves). The agency is truly privileged to be able to be part of the group’s journey through the helping profession – for over 35 years, the agency has had this honor for many in the field and looks forward to continuing this tradition.
