Program Description

The primary aim of the Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program is to provide a comprehensive predoctoral training program, which ensures the development of adequate levels of proficiency across the basic areas of clinical psychology including assessment, therapy, consultation, and clinical research. A central mission of the Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program is to promote diversity of perspective and experience in its pursuit of academic excellence in research, teaching, and service.

The Internship offers intensive training in four specific areas (tracks) of clinical psychology:

1. Adult
2. Child
3. Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine
4. Neuropsychology

All clinical psychology residents are admitted to the internship program within a track or area of emphasis, which represents their career focus or interests.

Adult and Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine clinical psychology residents complete two 4 month rotations with their specialization. The third rotation for the year is determined by the Training Committee, with input from the clinical psychology resident and his/her advisor, and is in an area either inside or outside of that individual's chosen track.

Child track clinical psychology residents complete a full year of training in clinical child, juvenile justice, and/or pediatric psychology with the option for supplemental experiences across these areas.

Neuropsychology track clinical psychology residents complete a full year of training in clinical neuropsychology.

The overall training objectives of the program reflect a commitment to the development of clinical psychologists who are clinical scientists with broad-based skills. Particular emphasis, however, is given to CBT and behaviorally-oriented approaches to assessment and treatment in the Adult, Child, and Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine Tracks. Training in the Neuropsychology Track is more eclectic in orientation. A secondary goal of the program is to provide a beginning concentration in a particular area of clinical psychology.
