Site Name: Salina Regional Health Center
Department: Behavioral Health Department
An interview will be required of all applicants being considered after applications have been thoroughly screened and reviewed. We prefer that the candidate interview on-site, but, given the circumstances surrounding Covid-19, we will consider phone or Zoom interviews following CDC public health guidance. Face-to-face contact between prospective interns and psychology faculty may give us a clearer impression of each other. Interviews are scheduled on January 5, January 12, and January 19th (if needed).
The interview format has been open-house style where several other applicants will be present. Applicants join us in going through our normal "training day" at SRHC. We start the day in testing seminar which is followed by case consulation. We then have our didactic training seminar (lunch is provided). Sometime during the events of the morning applicants will be interviewed individually by a panel of SRHC clinical staff. There is a tour of facilities and time to interact with the current interns without internship staff present. After 3pm, you are free to explore the area and the great city of Salina.
This following year it may be different and applicants may not get to see as much of the internship as we usually do. In the case of restricted travel and using the online format; then intern applicants will be interviewed with a couple of the faculty at Salina Regional via zoom for about 30 minutes.
Salina Regional Health Center is excited you are interested in becoming a part of something special — the dynamic team at Salina Regional Health Center's Behavioral Health Department. We created the internship in 2013 because we believe that SRHC is uniquely structured to provide interns an extraordinary opportunity that few other internships can offer — gaining experience at every level of the mental health treatment continuum.
As an intern at SRHC you will be able to hone your outpatient therapy skills and behavioral health consults, master group therapy process in both inpatient and outpatient programs, or continue to expand your psychological testing and assessment skills in each setting. You will work collaboratively with medical professionals at SRHC to help broaden your exposure to how psychology is practiced in various settings. In general, you will find yourself challenged by the broad range of diagnoses you will treat and rewarded when you finish the program ready to begin your professional career in whatever clinical setting you desire.
