This Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program is housed within the Department of Psychiatry in the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania. Penn's School of Medicine, the first in the nation, is part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System and includes the first hospital and the nation's first psychiatric unit founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1751. The goal of the internship training program is to provide a year-long combination of clinical rotations, supervision, and didactic experiences that prepare clinical psychologists for careers in health service psychology. The psychology internship is located at the University of Pennsylvania main campus at 3535 Market Street in Philadelphia.
The internship consists of two tracks, a general psychology track and a child/developmental disabilities track:
General Track: Interns have a series of clinical rotations consisting of one 12-month rotation and 4 6-month rotation that take place in a variety of settings including both inpatient and outpatient clinics.
Child/Developmental Disabilities Track: The primary goal of the Psychology Internship program in the Center for Mental Health is to train entry level psychologists who are highly competent in best practices for children with autism spectrum disorders, and in the application of those practices within public schools and community settings.
