Psychology Internship Training Program


The Psychology Internship training program embraces the philosophy that the pre-doctoral internship year represents a transition period for the emerging professional psychologist during which the Intern moves from the role of graduate student to that of the autonomous professional. Training and supervision during the year should prepare the Intern to enter the field of professional psychology with those skills needed to function independently and with the confidence and professional self-awareness to make maximum use of the individual's talents. Therefore, our training goal is to develop generalists who can function in a broad range of professional settings using a variety of skills. Reciprocally, our training program stimulates and enriches the training faculty and enhances the quality of patient care.

Eligibility Requirements
