The internship year provides training and experiences within a developmental framework that are sequential and graded in complexity. From the initial orientation month through the end of the training year, our interns are exposed to a wide range of experiences to prepare them to enter the field of health service psychology as skilled generalists with strong ethical decision making skills and multicultural competencies.

The training components include: a comprehensive orientation, weekly didactic seminars, a supervision rotation and a substance abuse prevention rotation, individual and group supervision with licensed psychologists, and group supervision with a multidisciplinary treatment team. Interns’ direct clinical, outreach, and consultation experiences include the provision of individual therapy, intake assessments, crisis, and screening assessments, conducting risk assessments with mandated and non-mandated students, group psychotherapy co-led with a psychology staff member, psycho-educational outreach presentations to the campus community, and consultations with campus administration, staff, faculty, and parents.
