About our Interns

2017 InternsOur doctoral interns have come from a variety of graduate training programs in psychology including: University of Southern Mississippi, University of Georgia, University of Oklahoma, University of Louisville, Emory, St. Louis University, University of Alabama, University of North Carolina – Greensboro, Wright State University, University of Wisconsin, Boston University, Vanderbilt University, to mention a few. They have been ethnically diverse and have come from a range of geographical areas within and outside the United States.

We strive to help our interns maintain a healthy work/life balance while having ample exposure to the many unique training opportunities available.  We schedule protected time for writing testing reports and completing clinical documentation throughout the week.  Below is an example schedule for an intern on the Consultation/Liaison service:

We are very proud of the interns who come through our program and are even more proud of the work they have gone on to do professionally.  Previous interns have gone to a variety of career and employment settings to include academic psychology, medical school faculty, medical school post-doctoral training, private practice, community mental health, research consultation, and hospital-based intervention (see below).
