Program Description

The internship program at Lurie Children's provides a broad range of experiences in clinical child and pediatric psychology through a year-long outpatient experience and three four-month rotations on the psychiatry and behavioral health consultation service, the partial hospitalization program, and a third intern choice rotation in inpatient psychiaty, a number of pediatric psychology sub-specialties, or community based work. Assessment experience consists of a  4-month pediatric neuropsychology rotation. The Psychology staff at Lurie Children's is committed to training broadly in behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, and family therapy approaches to treatment with an emphasis on best practices and empirically supported treatments. Involvement in clinically-based research during internship is optional but difficult unless trainees have already completed their dissertations. The primary training goal at Lurie Children's is to train students in both the "art" and "science" of clinical child psychology. At the end of internship successful students will be competent to move into post-doctoral or staff positions in academic medical settings, as well as other outpatient mental health settings.
