Our internship program will offer 3 tracks for the 2023-2024 training year in health psychology (5 positions), adult neuropsychology (2 positions), and pediatric neuropsychology (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. Possible health psychology rotations include general inpatient consultation/liaison, primary care, bariatric surgery, transplantation, and outpatient general mental health. Interns may also have the opportunity to select a minor rotation. Research opportunities are available for those who are interested.
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.
