Recruitment and interview processes in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic:

As the COVID-19 pandemic remains an evolving situation, The Neuropsychology Center and the APA Accredited Adult Psychology Internship Program will be compliant with The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai policies regarding non-essential employees. The Adult Psychology Internship Program plans to conduct interviews for the 2021-22 internship selection process either virtually or in person. The Adult Psychology Internship Program will offer applicants the choice of an in-person or virtual interview.  Note: In-person interviews will not be required for 2021 applicants.

Changes in The Neuropsychology Center due to COVID-19:

The Neuropsychology Center and the Adult Psychology Internship Program transitioned to distanced learning and training, as well as telehealth for psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessment in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. APA and the CoA recognize distance learning and education as an alternative for the delivery of in-person didactic education during this unprecedented time. The Adult Psychology Internship Program expanded distanced learning and education during COVID-19 and implemented this method as a regular educational delivery method as described in Implementing Regulations C-9 I and C-12 P. Presently, the Departmnet of Psychiatry has returned to partial in-person services as well as continuing some remote clinical services, learning, and training.  The return to full time in-person clinical services and on-site learning and training will continue to be reviewed by the Department of Psychiatry and the guidelines provided by the Mount Sinai Medical Center. When full-time in-person clinical services and training resumes for the Neuropsychology Center, the safety protocol established by the Mount Sinai Medical Center will be followed to ensure the well-being of trainees, staff, and patients.

Program Description

The Adult Internship in Clinical Psychology is a full-time, one year commitment with a focus in Neuropsychology.  A minimum of two Interns are admitted to the Training Program each year.  The training follows a scientist-practitioner model of professional development. The Internship commences on July first (or the first weekday following July first, if that day should fall on a weekend) and ends on the last weekday of the following June.  Interns typically spend forty hours per week in professional activities related to their Internship.  Eighty percent of this time is devoted to clinical responsibilities with a strong focus on neuropsychology (e.g., neuropsychological assessment, adult psychotherapy, supervision and didactics) and twenty percent to research activities (within our Alzheimer's Disease Research Center). Interns receive a minimum of three hours of individual supervision and two and a half hours of group supervision weekly.  Didactics are comprehensive with a particular focus on neuropsychology and its application to both clinical and research populations.  Under supervision, Interns engage in a wide variety of assessments and interventions appropriate to the role and function of a beginning clinical psychologist.  Upon successful completion of the training year, Interns will have completed 2000 hours of supervised clinical experience which can be applied towards licensure. You may contact Dr. Jane Martin at jane.martin@mssm.edu. Further information about the program is provided on our website:  www.mountsinai.org/neuropsychologicaltesting
