Program Description

We have 4 general internship slots (3 general and 1 trauma track)  and 4 neuropsychology slots available. The general internship is based in a public urban medical center, which is a primary teaching facility for Emory University School of Medicine. The general track consists of 3 rotations; adult, child/youth, and elective. Training is available in adult inpatient units, adult psychiatric emergency services, adult and child/adolescent outpatient intervention services, adult and child/adolescent outpatient assessment services, adult and child/adolescent medical services, and a variety of specialized elective services. The program is a generalist one based on the scientist practitioner model of training. The trauma track consists of a year long experience providing assessment, individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, and family therapy for women who have experienced domestic violence. The trauma track intern also provides psychological prevention and intervention services for health care workers who experience stress associated with exposures to bio-contaminants in the work setting.  Additionally the trauma track intern completes minor rotations which are selected based on training needs and interests.

The neuropsychology track, which is based in a university medical center setting, includes 2 intern slots with an adult/pediatric concentration and 2 intern slots with an adult/geriatric concentration.  All neuropsychology interns complete a 6-month major adult diagnostic assessment rotation.  Adult/pediatric concentration interns also complete a 6-month major rotation on a child neuropsychology service and adult/geriatric concentration interns also complete a 6-month major rotation on a geriatric neuropsychology service.  In addition to these major rotations focusing on neuropsychological assessment of patients with acquired brain injury, stroke, epilepsy, neoplasm, and other neurological conditions, interns on the neuropsychology track complete two minor intervention rotations.  These minor rotations provide opportunities for interns to gain experience with psychotherapeutic and behavioral health interventions in neurological rehabilitation and psychiatric settings.
