About the Program
The CPMC Doctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology adheres to a scientist-practitioner model that stresses the importance of research, theory, and scholarship, while drawing upon personal insights and clinical experiences to inform our work. We serve a very diverse patient population in multiple settings, including mental health clinics for children, adolescents, and adults; inpatient medical and psychiatric units; outpatient hospital clinics; and community-based health programs.
Our mission is to provide intensive education and training in an intellectually stimulating and respectful environment that prepares interns to deliver effective psychological services in an ethical and culturally-sensitive manner.
Throughout the year, our interns attend a wide array of seminars, participate in case conferences, work closely with individual and group supervisors, and engage in various professional development activities. As one of only a handful of APA-accredited internships to offer hospital-based training that draws upon the analytic tradition, CPMC offers a unique learning opportunity. Our philosophy of psychology training is grounded in contemporary analytic theory and intervention that is patient centered, culturally competent, and relationally oriented.
As a hospital-based internship that offers specialized training in a variety of settings, our training model is also influenced by integrative perspectives of illness and disease, including biopsychosocial treatment of psychiatric disorders and the promotion of health and well-being through collaboration with interdisciplinary care teams. Our interns work side-by-side with a range of healthcare providers (e.g., physicians, nurses, social workers, etc.) and internship training is closely aligned with our ACGME-accredited psychiatry residency and our post-doctoral fellowship in health psychology and women’s mental health.
