The aims of this training program are to produce highly qualified, autonomous, and professional psychologists who are capable of functioning within a variety of applied settings in the Army and to develop the professional competencies and identity that will serve as a solid basis for a career in health service psychology.
The philosophy of our Internship is based on the Practitioner-Scholar model. The focus is on training in adult assessment, treatment, and consultation in an outpatient setting. Training is supplemented in specialty areas such as neuropsychology, primary care psychology, pediatric psychology, intensive outpatient psychology, and child and family psychology. Interns are encouraged throughout the year to develop and to utilize their critical thinking skills, their knowledge of the scientific literature, and their ability to evaluate new research findings as a basis for clinical service delivery. Training focuses on the application of ethical decision-making skills and respect for individual differences and cultural diversity throughout experiential and didactic activities. The program recognizes it is essential to begin at each students’ level of professional development and provide opportunities through which existing skills are refined and new skills are acquired.
For the upcoming training year we will accept 6 full-time Interns who enter active duty as commissioned officers at the rank of Captain. Interns should plan to attend the Direct Commission Course in Ft. Sill, Oklahoma and the Basic Officer Leadership Course in San Antonio, Texas in the summer prior to beginning the Internship in the fall or after completion of Internship training in the winter.
