The Dartmouth Psychology Internship Program currently offers the Neuropsychology track, Adult Psychology track, and Child Psychology track. The Neuropsychology Track offers training for interns who plan on a career in neuropsychology. The Neuropsychology track offers two positions for the 2020-2021 training year. Training experiences in this track include administration of brief and extended neuropsychological assessment batteries to inpatient and outpatient populations with a variety of clinical presentations of organic and non-organic illness, including acquired barin injuries (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury), neurodegenerative disease and movement disorders, learning and developmental disorders (e.g., ADHD), epilepsy, and comorbid psychiatric and psychosocial impairment. Training in brief psychosocial interventions and longer-term psychotherapy are also available. Applicants to this track should have a strong background in provision of services to primarily adult populations. Interns in this track provide services within the Neuropsychology Service in the Outpatient Clinic of the Department of Psychiatry at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) and the inpatient services of New Hampshire Hospital. Several opportunities for reesarch collaboration exist, supported through protected research time.

The Adult Psychology track offers two positions for the 2020-2021 training year.

Interns can expect to receive training in evidence-based practices for anxiety, mood, trauma-related, and obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, as well as behavioral medicine services (e.g., chronic pain and insomnia). The Adult Psychology Track position involves significant opportunities for training in cognitive-behavioral and behavioral therapies. The interns in this track will spend the majority of their experience in clinical services, though opportunities for collaborative research are also available and encouraged through protected research time.
