Program Description

Our internship program will offer 5 tracks for the 2024-2025 training year in Health Psychology (4 positions), Adult Neuropsychology (2 positions), Pediatric Neuropsychology (1 position), Health Care Systems Research and Practice (1 position), and Behavioral Sleep/Circadian Medicine & Research (1 position). Applicants must specify which track(s) they are applying for in their cover letter.

Health psychology (Consultation-Liaison) interns focus on the relationships among medical illnesses, psychiatric disorders, and other behavioral problems. Consultation-liaison is a core skill that health psychology interns will learn. Interns will gain knowledge in assessment and diagnosis and also learn to work with medical professionals in a multidisciplinary setting. Health psychology interns will complete three (4 month) rotations and options include inpatient consultation-liaison, internal medicine/primary care, bariatric surgery, and transplant surgery. Interns may also have the opportunity to select a minor rotation. Research opportunities are available for those who are interested.

Adult and Pediatric Neuropsychology interns spend much of their time on the neuropsychology service or in related activities. Neuropsychology is focused on assessment and report writing using a flexible battery approach. Staff members have particular interest in executive dysfunction, stroke, epilepsy, head injury, and pediatric neuropsychology. Stroke, epilepsy, dementias, learning disabilities, and psychiatric disorders form the core of the referrals. The adult and pediatric neuropsychology interns will also spend approximately 4 hours per week conducting cognitive rehabilitation. In addition to testing children and adolescents on the neuropsychology service, the Pediatric Neuropsychology intern can also spend some time in the Autism Spectrum Disorder clinic. Adult Neuropsychology interns will complete 3 minor rotations in the second half of the internship year. Minor rotations are based on personal interest and include rotations with the health psychology staff.

The Health Care Systems Research & Practice track is new for the 2024-2025 academic year; however, we are leveraging existing training experiences for this track. This track is ideal for a trainee interested in a research career or a combination clinical/research career. The intern on this track will be matched with a research scientist in the Center for Health Policy and Health Services Research (Staff | Health Policy & Services Research | Henry Ford Health - Detroit, MI). The intern will contribute to one or more of their mentor's research projects and/or develop their own small research project. The intern will also select clinical rotations to complete across the training year. Rotation options that the intern could select from include Internal Medicine/Primary Care, Transplant Surgery, Gastroenterology, Bariatric Surgery, Women's Health, Psych-oncology, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Clinic, and Neuropsychology. Please specify 1 or 2 research faculty you would be interested in serving as your mentor in your cover letter.

Also new for the 2024-2025 academic year is the Behavioral Sleep/Circadian Medicine & Research track.  This track is ideal for a trainee interested in a research career or a combination clinical/research career with an emphasis in sleep medicine. The intern will work alongside a primary research mentor and engage in a year-long major clinical rotation in Behavioral Sleep Medicine. To round out the experience, the intern will also select two other rotations to complete across the training year. Rotation options that the intern could select from include Internal Medicine/Primary Care, Transplant Surgery, Gastroenterology, Bariatric Surgery, Women's Health, Psych-oncology, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Clinic, and Neuropsychology. Please specify your research interests and career goals in your cover letter for this track.
