Optional Training Activities

Informal Social Events
Doctoral interns are encouraged to enjoy each other’s company and participate in facility social events such as the WSH Holiday Breakfast in December, and psychology departmental gatherings–when these are again possible in the pandemic situation. Virtual meetings, phone calls, and socially-distanced outdoor activities (while masked) are the best options for now.
