While at Portage Path, students are assigned a clinical supervisor and provide therapy, group counseling, and clinical assessments to a diverse group of clients. Opportunities include the Portage Path Psychology Practicum Program for psychology students, as well as Internships for students of counseling, social work, and nursing. Former students have used their great experiences here to launch  professional careers in the mental health field and to receive prime fellowships.
