Candidates should submit a testing report, including projectives, in the Supplemental Section of the AAPI. Candidates are notified by e-mail and are usually interviewed between December and January. Interviews are with two faculty members and generally last about one hour. Candidates will have an opportunity to meet with current Interns to learn about the day-to-day workings of the Internship.
NB: Consistent with APPIC's Recruitment and Selection Guidance, interviews will be conducted virtually if indicated, in order to support safe and equitable practices. The safety of our communities remains of utmost importance.

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.
