Program Description

The Indiana University School of Medicine Psychology Internship Program is located within the Section of Psychology, Department of Psychiatry.  Training sites for the internship program include the Neuroscience Center (Goodman Hall), Indiana University Hospital and Clinics (IU Health Facility), Riley Hospital for Children (IU Health Facility), The Pediatric Care Center (Riley/IUHP Medical Office), IU Health Methodist Hospital (IU Health Facility), IU Health North Clinic at Meridian Crossing, and IU Health Primary Care locations including IU-Methodist Family Medicine Center and Georgetown Medical Plaza.  The sites provide interns with a variety of training experiences. All 27 psychologists involved in the training program have faculty appointments in the Section of Psychology, Department of Psychiatry and/or the Department of Neurology, are licensed to practice psychology in Indiana, and have endorsements in Indiana as Health Service Providers in Psychology (HSPP).

The Internship year is a full 12 months, beginning on the first working day of July and continuing through the last working day of the following June.  The training year is structured into two, six-month core rotations and 2 days/week of concurrent six-month elective rotations (July through December and January through June).  To ensure breadth of training, interns are expected to complete at least one core or elective rotation in a traditional psychology clinic setting, and one core or elective in a behavioral medicine setting.  They are also required to complete at least one core or elective rotation with an adult population, and at least one core or elective rotation with a child-adolescent population.   Please see the “Rotations” section of our brochure which is available on our website for full descriptions of the available rotations.  

Eight positions are available; three interns will be accepted into the Child/Pediatric Track, two into the Adult Health Psychology Track, one into the Integrated Care Track, one into the Pediatric Neuropsychology Track and one into the Autism Track.  Separate program numbers are used in the match for each of these tracks.   Applicants may apply to more than one track, but must be able to explain how all tracks to which they are applying are consistent with their training goals.

Core rotations will be: Autism Track: Both core rotations in Autism, Child/Pediatric: Two core rotations selected from:  Child Outpatient, Pediatric Consultation Liaison, and Pediatric Outpatient.  Adult Health Psychology: Both core rotations in Adult Health Psychology, Integrated Care: Two core rotations in Integrated Care  Pediatric Neuropsychology: Both core rotations in Pediatric Neuropsychology.   Please remember, core rotations are 2-1/2 days per week.  Additional breadth of training is provided through 2 days/week of elective rotations. 

Details of rotation schedules, including selection of elective rotations, will be determined during the spring prior to beginning internship taking into account each intern’s training goals.  Incoming interns, program leadership, and supervisors work collaboratively to determine the best combination of rotations for each intern.  

In addition to the core rotations and specialty rotations, interns attend a series of weekly didactics presented on a wide variety of topics.  These didactics will take place on Fridays from 1:00 – 4:00PM.  The full didactic schedule is available on request.  

All interns also attend Director's Conference weekly on Fridays from 12:00-12:45PM, just prior to didactics.   This is an opportunity for the interns to have regularly scheduled time with the Director of Training and/or the Assistant Directors of training.  

Please Note: Due to the ongoing uncertain course and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, clinical training experiences, supervision, and didactic activities for the 2022-2023 training year may involve a mix of virtual formats (telehealth visits, Zoom didactics and tele-supervision) and in-person formats.  Psychology interns, like all Graduate Medical Education (GME) employees, are considered essential and could be asked to come in to provide care to patients during a stay at home order.
