Program Description

Hennepin Healthcare (formally Hennepin County Medical Center or HCMC) has been a psychology training site since 1965. It is a large teaching hospital and a Level I Trauma Center. Our internship program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation (CoA) of the American Psychological Association (APA). While we emphasize a strong foundation in assessment and intervention as well as consultation to our medical services, we also strive to individualize the internship experience. Our setting offers interns the opportunity to work with an ethnically, culturally, and socioeconomically diverse patient population. In addition, being part of a large teaching hospital and trauma center provides our interns many unique training experiences.
