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, the concentration is Infant Mental Health. Applicants should apply to either the Adult or Child track. Two Tracks are offered currently:I. Adult Track Focus: Forensic Psychology - one position available in 2021-2022 APPIC Match Number: 131711  II. Child Track Focus: Infant Mental Health - two positions available in 2021-2022 APPIC Match Number: 131714
