Selected applicants will be able to choose from two Interview Day options tentatively scheduled on 10 December 2021 and 7 January 2022. Both will be offered virtually through a video teleconference platform (e.g., MS Teams). Each Interview Day is a day long and includes an overview of the program, presentations on each rotation and training experience, a virtual tour, and Q&A sessions with faculty and current interns. You will have the opportunity to interview with two faculty members regarding your professional interests and to receive answers to any questions; individual requests for interviewers will be considered. We typically also have current faculty and/or interns' partners available to answer questions from applicants' partners and family members. We host an optional and informal virtual social engagement with current faculty and interns the night before the Interview Day as well.
The Clinical Psychology internship at Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical is a military internship with the United States Air Force. The training emphasizes intervention and assessment practices that are well-supported by empirical literature. Extensive training provided in cognitive behavioral strategies, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy via workshops and a weekly Evidence Based Practice Lab. In addition to traditional training in assessment and therapy, we offer state of the art programs in clinical health psychology, primary care consultation and evidence-based treatment for PTSD (Prolonged Exposure & Cognitive Processing Therapy). Interns learn frequently utilized assessment strategies and tools for a variety of common and military-related neurocognitive concerns. They gain invaluable experience in crisis intervention and triage, and provide psychological consultation to organizational leadership regarding fitness for duty of individual military members. Additionally, interns will learn how to utilize a scientist-practitioner approach to address population health issues during our Population Health seminar.
