North Memorial Health (NMH) and the University of St. Thomas (UST) are jointly partnered to sponsor a doctoral internship in psychology. The NMH-UST Joint Doctoral Psychology Internship Program emphasizes training in the general practice of health service psychology. The Internship Program features training opportunities in interprofessional/multidisciplinary settings, evidence-based practice, and an emphasis on multicultural competence and diversity. Training activities include direct clinical service (therapy and assessment), providing supervision to masters-level trainees, individual and group supervision, observation and social learning, consultation, didactic seminars, and other learning opportunities. Over the course of the training year, Interns may rotate through various mental health services offered by NMH, where they report for three days a week. Two days of the week are dedicated to training activities related to the UST’s Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services (IPC). To provide comprehensive support across a diverse range of training experiences, a team of NMH and IPC supervisors and training faculty collaborate with each Intern to establish and carry out their individualized learning goals. See Website/Brochure for more information.
For the 2023-2024 training year, two (2) intern positions are offered. Qualified applicants from any program meeting inclusion criteria (see below) are welcome to apply in Phase I and Phase II of the Match. The Internship Program is partially affiliated with the University of St. Thomas’ Graduate School of Professional Psychology, which stipulates that the Internship Selection Committee may give preference to qualified UST applicants in offering interviews and/or ranking. There is no minimum number of positions exclusively for UST applicants. The Program encourages applications from individuals representing intersecting individual and cultural diversity, including historically underrepresented groups.
