Program Description

Welcome to the Pre-Doctoral Internship Program in clinical psychology at Carle Foundation Hospital.  The current year (2018-2019) is the sixth year that Carle is sponsoring a psychological internship. We are excited that you are interested in our program.  Our goal is to establish a first class internship that reflects the high standards achieved by Carle Hospital. We have been accreditated by the American Psychological Association since March 22, 2016. 

 

Interns would be provided with three possible tracks in adult, child/adolescent or generalist.   Interns in the generalist track are open to seeing an equal amount of child and adult patients. While one characteristic of our program is the intern’s ability to choose one of three possible tracks, an additional strength is the intern’s opportunity to see patients within all three tracks.  Based on need, we would like the interns to be flexible to see patients of any age group. For example, an intern may choose the adult track and see primarily adult clients, but still be able to see child clients and be supervised by our child psychologists. All tracks would provide a foundation in assessment (evaluations and testing) and treatment. Learning would take place through clinical evaluations, supervision, supervised report writing and didactic seminars. Interns will have opportunities  to provide psychological services for  bariatric surgery patients, chronic illness, psycho-somatic illness, behavioral sleep medicine, and pain management in addition to the gamut of depression, anxiety, and adult adjustment disorders. Child interns would be able to benefit from specializations in ADHD, disruptive behavior disorders, trauma, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety and OCD, depression, divorce adjustment, and the treatment of young children.  We will also offer several didactics in neuropsychology. As you can see from our faculty descriptions, we are a diverse and highly trained group.  Although most of us are generalists who see virtually all types of clients, we can provide quite unique specialized opportunities for interested interns.  Our psychologists have interests in rehabilatation psychology, sports psychology, reproductive medicine, plant based diets, and public policy. Interns will be assigned patients some of whom will be economically disadvantaged and come from different racial and cultural backgrounds consistent with the mission of Carle Foundation Hospital.
