Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site Interns typically work 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, with early evening hours one to two days per week in order to accommodate an outpatient case. They are assigned to a staff psychologist and share responsibility, under close and direct supervision, for provision of psychological services on their designated units. They participate in a core curriculum of courses, clinical rotations, and individual supervision, and provide direct patient care, serving as primary therapists for up to 5 child/adolescent patients on either an inpatient or day hospital unit. A typical work day includes individual, group and family psychotherapy sessions; psychological assessment; and multidisciplinary, collaborative team activities, including diagnostic conferences and interdisciplinary case reviews. Intern/primary therapist responsibilities also include clinical case management functions, including disposition planning, interagency collaboration, and coordination of supports and services to maintain youngsters in the community.

https://www.omh.ny.gov/omhweb/facilities/nyccc/qcpc/brochures/internship-2015-2016-brochure.pdf

Focus of training is on in-depth treatment and assessment of children and adolescents with serious psychiatric challenges in inpatient and day-treatment settings. The training model is Practitioner-Scholar. Interns will have two 6-month rotations, typically, though not invariably, one on the Inpatient service and one in Day Treatment. They will receive intensive supervision on their psychotherapy cases as well as on their testing assignments. They will become vital members of the interdisciplinary treatment team to which they are assigned and will gain experience in individual, family and group therapies, as well as consultation, community advocacy, and clinical presentation. Students are highly respected in our institution and are encouraged to use the Internship experience to develop their own professional identity, making use of the diversity of approaches used by the Internship faculty and other hospital staff.
