Our goal is to train entry-level generalist psychologists that have been exposed to various clinical contexts in which professional psychologists work. In addition to developing core competencies in the general areas of clinical psychology, each intern will gain experience in a particular area of concentration. Further, we emphasize direct experience with patients at various stages of development, with a wide breadth of presentations and demographic characteristics, in varied contexts and service delivery systems (i.e., outpatient mental health, psychiatric inpatient, medical setting), and employing a variety of modalities of approaches, which we believe prepares interns to enter comfortably into a range of professional roles and settings. Examples of the aforementioned medical setting include outpatient services in the areas of cardiology, diabetes, rheumatology, women’s health, smoking cessation, bariatric, and primary care. The inpatient opportunities include psychiatric (e.g., adolescent and geriatric) and palliative care.We believe this approach to training helps interns articulate a strong professional identity, and fosters a commitment to "whole-person care," namely, a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective in clinical care. All interns develop core competencies in psychological assessment and diagnosis, psychological intervention, supervision, professional consultation, and program evaluation/development. The elective concentrations are designed to provide interns with exposure to more specialized areas of clinical psychology and/or populations with specific needs, including those with co-morbid medical and psychiatric diagnoses in a medical care setting. In keeping with LLU's mission statement (www.llu.edu/medicine/mission.page), applicants who show interest and commitment for the integration of religion and spirituality within the practice of psychology are strongly encouraged to apply.
