A total of five positions are available (3 adult and 2 child/adolescent focus).
We are committed to training interns in culturally informed clinical care by providing opportunities to serve vulnerable, underserved patient populations that are culturally and linguistically diverse.
Interns will develop and refine their skills in psychological assessment, evaluation, and psychotherapeutic interventions. Graduates are prepared to work effectively in interprofessional settings and provide interdisciplinary, team-based, and trauma-informed care. Additionally, interns are equipped to serve rural, border, child, adolescent, and transitional age youth in medically underserved communities.
Interns conduct comprehensive evaluations of individuals across the age span with a broad range of psychopathology (e.g., mood disorders, psychotic-spectrum disorders, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, and anxiety disorders) and varying socio-cultural and ethnic backgrounds. They gain competence in major treatment modalities; learn the knowledge and skills to practice within a variety of mental health settings; have the opportunity to teach professionals in other disciplines (psychiatry, medicine, and pediatrics), families, and members of community agencies; become familiar with research methodology and professional/scientific literature on evidence-based clinical intervention; and learn to participate effectively as leaders within multidisciplinary teams.
