Program Goals

Our program aims to complete the education of broadly-trained health service psychologists begun in their home institutions while maintaining a focus on psychology practice in medical settings. The internship seeks to build on interns' previous training experiences and further develop their knowledge and skills to prepare for a successful career in the field of psychology. This internship aims for trainees to achieve the level of function expected of an entry-level community or academic psychologist.

This is accomplished through training focused on nine profession-wide competencies:

  1. Research
  2. Ethical and Legal Standards
  3. Individual and Cultural Standards
  4. Professional Value and Attitudes
  5. Communication and Interpersonal Skills
  6. Assessment
  7. Intervention
  8. Supervision
  9. Consultation and Interprofessional/Interdisciplinary Skills


  • The provision of high-quality psychological services particularly in medical settings, including:
    • Conduct clinical interviews and assessments; produce comprehensive treatment plans.
    • Practice multi-modal psychotherapy (individual and group) in a variety of settings.
    • Provide appropriate crisis services and response.
    • Be able to conduct programs, presentations, and consultations.
