Post graduate
Vocational internship in psychology

The 1989 law which governs the statutory regulations for qualified psychologists (n░ 56, 18th of February, art. 5) and the subsequent Ministerial decree of the 13.1.1992, n░ 239 outlining the normative guidelines for postgraduate vocational training, establish that only psychology graduates who have carried out a postgraduate vocational training period will be admitted to the state exam for licenced psychologists.

The internship is a compulsory training period which enables graduates to register for section B of the state exam (successful candidates will be granted the professional title of 'Dottore in techniche psicologiche'), and section A of the state exam (successful candidates will become psychologists).

Pursuant to the new educational program regulating first and second cycle degree courses, ex D.M. 270/2004 starting in the 2008/2009 academic year, and as established by the provisions of D.P.R. 328/2001 and the European Certificate in Psychology (EuroPsy), the vocational internship/apprenticeship required to access the state exam and enrol in section B or section A of the professional register is regulated as follows:

First Cycle degrees in Psychological Sciences and Techniques (L-24 ex DM 270/2004)
The six-month training period (amounting to 500 hours) required for admission to the state exam - section B of the professional register, must be carried out after graduation.

Second Cycle degrees in Psychology (LM-51 ex DM 270/2004)
In the case of students who possess a postgraduate degree, the vocational training period required for admission to the state exam - section A of the professional register, must last a year (amounting to 1000 hours) and must be carried out after graduation.
