VA Pilot Program Provides Internships for UHV Students

A trio of University of Houston-Victoria graduate students will take part in a pilot program for mental health counseling.

They were recently awarded paid internships to receive hands-on mental health counseling training at the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Houston.

The UHV School of Education, Health Professions & Human Development and the DeBakey VA center are partners in a pilot program designed to expand the recruitment pipeline of well-trained, highly qualified health care providers in mental health professions.
