At Palmetto Health, our Licensed Professional Counselor/Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Internship Program (LPC-I/LMFT-I) is focused on improving the overall health of the communities we serve. We use an integrated model of care to provide a variety of treatment options to enhance the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of all of the patients we serve.
This is a 12-month program with the option of completing a two-year internship based on performance. Placement begins in July, and applicants should be licensed as either an LPC-I or LMFT-I in South Carolina, or as an LPC/LMFT associate in another state.
Each intern will have the opportunity to be placed in different medical practice settings, where they will be referred clients from medical staff and medical residents and receive supervision. Currently, there are four medical practices providing these opportunities – the Celia Saxon Health Center/ACCES Clinic, the Palmetto Health Internal Medicine Clinic, the Family Medicine Center and the Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center. Each setting will provide many opportunities to work with doctors, advanced practice providers, nurses and medical residents.
Palmetto Health Counseling, an integrated counseling practice of Palmetto Health, is staffed by licensed LMFTs and LPCs. Palmetto Health Counseling will provide clinical supervision and oversight for each intern in our program.
If you would like to contact current interns in our program, have questions about applying or the program in general, please call Palmetto Health Counseling at 803-296-5614.
