About This Rotation

Interns at this site will spend all of their time at the Compass Health Raymore office. Not all interns decide to participate in the same learning experiences or supervision opportunities. Psychology interns at Compass Health sites utilize both hands-on training as well as web-based training programs. The agency offers a full training library of web-based programs for the interns and staff to access as they are able based on their licenses/interests. Interns will have access to office space with computer and access to the internet and printer. Each location is equipped with the testing and training materials necessary for the interns to complete the requirements of their training year. Raymore, Missouri is located approximately 30 minutes south of Kansas City, which offers a great opportunity for entertainment and activities.

It should be noted that Raymore is approximately 2.5 hours from Springfield, Missouri, where interns must travel to quarterly in-person didactics (plus orientation). Due to the distance, interns at this location will be provided up to $175 in travel reimbursement considerations for each of these trainings.
