The Centre for Psychological Services and Career Development (PsyCaD) at the University of Johannesburg is an accredited training institute for Intern Psychologists in the category of Educational Psychology and Counselling Psychology. Intern Psychologists are appointed at PsyCaD based on the guidelines and the principles of the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (1997). 

Psychology Masters students, whom have completed their theoretical year at any accredited South African University, are eligible to complete an internship at PsyCaD.

All Intern Psychologists' duties are carried out under the Supervision of registered Psychologists in PsyCaD, in the relevant registration category. Intern Psychologists receive continuous multi-disciplinary training throughout the year, relevant to their job description and PsyCaD functions.
