Program Description

Our internship is designed for psychologists-in-training who will go on to become leaders in the field.  We are guided by a practitioner-scholar framework to prepare interns for a variety of careers in the context of interprofessional training in an academic medical center. We feature tracks in adult psychology, including a deaf wellness specialty position, and child and adolescent psychology. This generalist internship is predominantly clinical and provides training in a variety of interdisciplinary settings with individuals with a wide range of mental health challenges. Our program offers multiple integrated care experiences. All interns participate in inpatient and outpatient rotations. We also offer a variety of elective experiences including training in: a Spanish speaking mental health clinic, physical medicine and rehab psychology, school-based sites, women’s health, geriatrics, pediatric primary care and research/program evaluation. All interns participate in a mentored Leadership Project that expands their perspectives on contributions psychologists make to clinical, administrative, community and academic leadership activities. Our program is deeply committed to training and supervision and includes numerous professional development experiences to support trainee career trajectories. As a program, we are actively engaged in examining our diversity, equity and inclusion blind spots and dismantling historical, institutional, and societal factors that impact mental health and access to care. This commitment is guided by Psychology's professional standards and ethics and is informed by evolving personal and professional awareness and actions.
