Program Description

The Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (JHACH) is accredited by the American Psychological Association. The internship is a full-time, 2000-hour program that is designed to be completed in 12 consecutive months of training. The training program strives to provide interns with the opportunity (in terms of setting, experience, and supervision) to begin assuming the professional role of a Pediatric Psychologist through a structured program of study. This entails the integration of interns’ previous training with further development of the knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes related to the professional practice of Psychology.

Training Philosophy

In keeping with a Scientist-Practitioner model of education, interns are viewed as scholars, active consumers of research, and progressively, highly trained professional practitioners who apply knowledge and techniques in patient care. As such, interns are expected to gain competency in clinical assessment and intervention skills as well as in general research skills, and the ability to apply these skills to investigating problems of interest to pediatric psychologists. This emphasis on integrating research and clinical skills produces a scientist-practitioner who is able to incorporate these domains. It is the expectation that interns will become leaders and innovators in the field of pediatric psychology in clinical, research, and/or academic settings. Key training elements to achieve this aim include early involvement in faculty research, training with psychologists who integrate science and practice, and active learning from the presentation of didactic material that is informed by current research. Interns’ participation in clinical research, practical clinical training, and didactic/seminar experiences will facilitate effective integration of science and practice, with increasing autonomy as the intern progresses, as appropriate to the intern’s developmental level.         

Aims of the Program

The overall aim of the internship program is to prepare interns for entry level practice in health service psychology. This aim is accomplished by providing training in generalist clinical skills in psychology, diversity, collaborative skills for operating within an interprofessional and interdisciplinary team, and overall professional development as a psychologist.

Competencies and Elements of the Program

The Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology at JHACH provides education and training designed to promote intern development in the nine profession-wide competencies according to APA’S required Profession Wide Competencies for internship programs as listed in the Standards of Accreditation for Health Service Psychology.

Each intern will obtain significant experience, spending approximately 24 hours weekly providing clinical services in-person and via telemedicine platfoms to children and adolescents with a wide variety of medical conditions.

Interns will complete 2 major rotations over the course of the training year, with each major rotation lasting 6 months in duration. Interns will also complete one minor rotation over the course of the training year. Major and minor rotations are determined by an individualized training program tailored to meet the training needs and interests of each intern. Major rotations take place 2.5 days per week, and minor rotations are allotted 1.5 days per week.

For the duration of the training year, each intern will complete 2 intakes per week in the Psychology Intake Clinic. As part of the training requirements, interns will participate in weekly didactics.

Interns may also choose to select from additional training experiences, which include Grand Rounds, research, and a variety of medical specialty teams within the hospital depending on interest and the feasibility of scheduling.
