Portage Path Student Training Program

The Portage Path Student Training Program, under the direction of Phil Scozarro, Ph.D., provides a great opportunity for students from many training disciplines to receive real-world treatment experience that complements their academic program. While at Portage Path, students are assigned a clinical supervisor and provide therapy, group counseling, and clinical assessments to a very 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 report that they had great experiences here which helped them launch professional careers in the mental health field, as well as receive prime fellowships.
