Interns recieve 5 days of professional development leave time for the year and can accrue more through after hours outreach activities. Professional Development Leave can be used for working on dissertation, travel for dissertation defense, or job interviews.

Interns develop outreach skills through participation in one of four outreach teams organized around psychoeducational topic areas. Currently, the teams are composed around the topics of Diversity Issues, Healthy Relationships and Sexual Assault, Mood Disorders, and Stress Management and Body Image.
