When they are not at their main rotation, they may be seeing outpatient clients for therapy or testing. Wednesdays from 8-2pm is our "training day" where we do testing seminar, group supervision, and didactic training seminars. Most days are 8a-5pm. Tuesday nights go until 700 as the interns run a process group.

Interview process description:

An interview will be required of all applicants being considered after applications have been thoroughly screened and reviewed. We prefer that the candidate interview on-site, but we will arrange phone or Skype interviews in special circumstances. Face-to-face contact between prospective interns and psychology faculty may give us a clearer impression of each other and may therefore provide an advantage to interns who apply in person. Interviews are scheduled on January 8, January 15, and January 22rd (if needed).

The interview format is open-house style where several other applicants will be present. Applicants join us in going through our normal "training day" at SRHC. We start the day in testing seminar which is followed by case consulation. We then have our didactic training seminar (lunch is provided). Sometime during the events of the morning applicants will be interviewed individually by a panel of SRHC clinical staff. There will be a tour of facilities and time to interact with the current interns without internship staff present. After 3pm, you are free to explore the area and the great city of Salina.

Program Description

Salina Regional Health Center is excited you are interested in becoming a part of something special — the dynamic team at Salina Regional Health Center's Behavioral Health Department. We created the internship in 2012 because we believe that SRHC is uniquely structured to provide interns an extraordinary opportunity that few other internships can offer — gaining experience at every level of the mental health treatment continuum.


As an intern at SRHC you will be able to hone your outpatient therapy skills, master group therapy process in either our inpatient or intensive outpatient programs, or continue to expand your psychological testing and assessment skills in each setting. You will work collaboratively with medical professionals at SRHC to help broaden your exposure to how psychology is practiced in various settings. In general, you will find yourself challenged by the broad range of diagnoses you will treat and rewarded when you finish the program ready to begin your professional career in whatever clinical setting you desire.
