Program Description

Interns work with a diverse group of patient populations. Our objective is to bring together trainees from different institutions and with different training backgrounds to enhance personal interchange and professional stimulation. We train interns only in those clinical settings where our full-time faculty are actively involved. The majority of our intern graduates subsequently complete a postdoctoral fellowship. Our program offers two tracks: Adult Psychology and Child Psychology. In the Adult Track, the concentration is Forensic Psychology. Within the Child track, intern applicants specify an area of concentration.  In the Child Track, the concentration is either Pediatric Psychology or Infant Mental Health. Applicants may specify an interest in being considered for either concentration within the Child Track, but they should state a preference. Stated preferences will be used for arranging interviews only and for no other purpose. Two Tracks are offered currently:I. Adult Track Focus: Forensic Psychology - one position available in 2020-2021 APPIC Match Number: 131711  II. Child Track (applicants may apply for either or both areas of focus) (II.1. or II.2.) Focus 1. Pediatric Psychology- one position available in 2020-2021 APPIC Match Number: 131715  Focus 2. Infant Mental Health - two positions available in 2020-2021 APPIC Match Number: 131714
