Under the direction of Dr. Heather T. Snyder, one undergraduate psychology intern has completed 450 hours of community service during their summer 2023 internship.

The Department of Psychology at Edinboro recently announced that Hannah Shartle has completed a 12-credit internship at Meadville Medical Center in the inpatient mental health unit, under the direction of Clifford Burk, nurse manager.

"This internship has been the best opportunity, allowing information learned in the classroom to be applied to real life experiences," Shartle said.

After her internship, Shartle plans to work in inpatient mental health while attending graduate school this fall.

Undergraduate internships in psychology are typically undertaken by students following their junior year. Internships provide students with an opportunity to obtain professional work experience in a variety of settings in the field of psychology.
