Once applications are reviewed, a selected number of applicants are invited to attend one of four Interview Days in January. This is an opportunity for applicants to learn more about the program, meet with supervisors and current interns, get a feeling for the neighborhood and learn more about the training opportunities. If you are not invited for an interview, you will be informed by the end of December.
We ask that applicants set aside 4 hours to spend with us. Applicants will be scheduled for an individual interview, a group interview, and meet with the current intern group. If you are bilingual (English/Spanish) applicant you will, in addition, have a 30 minute interview and information session in English and Spanish with a faculty member to better assess skill level and interest in bilingual/bicultural work.
Update November 5, 2021: The interview process for the 2022-2023 application cycle will remain fully virtual. To support safe and equitable practices, and in keeping with national trainee feedback, on site interviews will not be permitted, even if a prospective applicant lives within close range of the site.
The Clinical Psychology Program at Woodhull Medical Center is under the auspices of the Department of Psychiatry. The program provides a generalist training within a clinical model to meet the mental health needs of underserved populations in an ethnically diverse city environment. All interns are required to participate in a year-long core rotation in the Adult and Child and Adolescent Departments and 3 months with Inpatient Services. Interns are also required to develop an area of interest by selecting from minor rotations. They can select between: HIV Center, Chemical Dependency Treatment Services, Mobile Crisis Team, Bilingual Community Outreach (Spanish/English)Service, DBT, ACT,ER, Obstetrics, Consultation/Liaison and Group Psychotherapy. Interns will participate in a didactic seminar series and are required to attend Grand Rounds. Interns will develop competence in a)working with a wide range of presenting problems; b)diagnostic, assessment and psychotherapy, c)adult and child group psychotherapy; d)multi-disciplinary collaboration; e)consulting to schools; f)conveying psychological knowledge to others e)providing therapy within a bilingual English/Spanish/bicultural framework if applicable. We offer significant supervision in all minor and core rotations. Training supervisors work from a variety of theoretical orientations, including Psychodynamic, CBT, Family Systems, Multicultural and Interpersonal Perspectives and offer interns supportive supervision and look to enhance professional development.
