Site Name: Broughton Hospital
Department: Psychology Department
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Broughton will NOT be conducting any on site interviews for the 22-23 application cycle. Interviews will be telephone or via video platforms such as Microsoft Teams/Google Meets. Interviews are conducted each Friday afternoon through January.
Applicants will be invited to complete pre-interview videos through Willo. On interview day, all candidates interviewing on that day (typically 6 individuals or so) will convene virtually for a general program and facility overview and information about the geographic location. Immediately following, candidates have round-robin style group interview with 2 or more of the department's psychology faculty and staff, which lasts about 1.5 hours. After this, our current pre-doctoral interns will be available for a question and answer session. The afternoon concludes with a brief conclusion from the Training Director or designee.
Applicants are notified by e-mail as to whether they are being actively considered in the interview process.
Individuals requesting to visit on site with faculty and staff should direct inquires to the Training Director. Decisions to allow visits are subject to the facility's current policies and practices regarding entrance of non-employees during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and are subject to change.
Broughton Hospital trains interns to provide a broad array of psychological services within the public mental health sector. The program follows a practitioner-scholar model. Interns are expected to expand on their proficiency in assessment, treatment (individual and group), and professional skills and development. Interns obtain inpatient experience and training while participating in interdisciplinary teams. Most adult patients at the hospital have severe and persistent mental illness. The internship typically involves three four-month primary rotations on three of the following areas: adult admissions (acute), geropsychology, adult extended treatment services (longer term treatment), and adolescent services. Secondary rotations include the Capacity Restoration program (for patients who have been found not capable of proceeding to trial) and the Specialty Services minor rotation. All interns receive individual doctoral-level supervision on all assigned primary rotations in addition to supervision provided for the secondary rotations. Each intern receives a minimum of two hours of individual supervision and two hours of group supervision each week. Interns typically receive superivision in excess of these minimums. Interns participate in weekly seminars with topics on assessment, treatment, and areas of professional development. Interns are also provided opprtunities to particpate in training and consulation to other disciplines regarding multicultural factors to consider when treating the SPMI population.
