In this study the self-reported multicultural competency levels of predoctoral psychology interns at university counseling centers was examined by the Multicultural Counseling Inventory (MCI) and the Counseling Training Program Multicultural Competency Checklist (CTPMCC). The variables of gender, race, age, and type of graduate psychology degree program did not predict participants self-ratings of their proficiency in areas related to multicultural counseling competency as assessed by the MCI. On the CTPMCC, Black predoctoral interns reported significantly more positive rankings of their graduate programs in areas of minority representation and the presence of a multiculturally inclusive physical environment than respondents from other racial/ethnic minority groups. Individuals from Ph.D. graduate training programs reported significantly more favorable rankings than participants from Psy.D. graduate training programs regarding issues related to counseling practice and supervision.
