Applications are reviewed and all applicants are notified of their status by December 4th. A selected group of applicants are invited to attend one of three Visit Days. For 2020 the Visit Days will occur on January 6, 10 and 13. The Visit Days involve an overview of the program by the Director of Training, individual meetings with placement faculty and current interns, and a group lunch with current interns.
Yale offers one of the nation’s premier internships in clinical and community psychology, which has been accredited by APA since 1970. Up to 16 interns train each year in one of 10 placements within a vibrant academic medical center where the emphasis is on state of the art clinical care, professional education, and research. Interns have placements at either Yale-New Haven Hospital or the Connecticut Mental Health Center. The training program embraces a scientist-practitioner model in which theory and evidence inform professional practice and each intern has protected time to pursue a scholarly activity. The internship is part of a nurturing professional community of psychologists that values and promotes diversity among the faculty, interns, populations served, and theoretical perspectives. A priority is placed on professional development, including assistance to students in securing opportunities after internship. Each year, many graduating interns remain at Yale to pursue postdoctoral training and research. There are over 200 psychology faculty members in the Psychiatry Department and they are leaders in the field as evidenced by their record of grants, publications, awards, and roles in professional organizations and government-sponsored boards and committees.
