Master of Social Work Behavioral Health Practicum Stipends

This practicum is designed to provide an intensive opportunity for students to become highly skilled and competent entry-level behavioral health professionals.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to work in the Mason and Partners (MAP) clinics, providing interprofessional integrative care to medically underserved, uninsured vulnerable populations through the bridge care model.  Students will be immersed in an intensive and supportive learning environment with specially designed training opportunities under qualified field instructors.  This project is a collaboration between the MAP clinics and the Greater Prince William Health Center, and requires students to be placed in a MAP Clinic practicum.
