The Sacramento VA Medical Center offers a generalist internship training program located near a growing urban center which also serves a significant number of rural Veterans from the upper third of the State of California and into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. We require all interns complete a General Mental Health rotation, one medical consultation rotation from PCMHI, BMed, BHICU (inpatient assessment), and one specialty rotation from PTSD, Addictions, or community-based mental health. The fourth major rotation is an elective based on availability. All interns will complete either a year-long clinical experience in ACT (w/ the Training Director) or a year-long clinic in CPT and trauma treatment. Interns may elect to participate in-depth training (2-3 day long training w/ 6 month consultation follow up) in IPT or MI. Interns should expect a variety of face to face and telework depending on needs of the specific rotation. Sacramento is a growing region with easy access to the best parts of Northern California, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
