Internship Program Admissions

Tables updated September 1

The primary aim of the program is to train interns in the profession-wide competencies needed to be a skilled psychologist working with children, adolescents, emerging adults, and families in a medical setting. Additionally, multicultural/diversity issues, ethical practice, interpersonal skills, and professional behavior are addressed during the training year. There are two psychology internship positions. We offer two tracks: one in Pediatric Psychology and the other in Pediatric Neuropsychology. Both interns will receive training in assessment, consultation/liaison work, and outpatient therapy. Applicants must come from APA-accredited programs. Selection criteria include many other factors.

The program requires that applicants have received a minimum number of hours of the following at time of application:
