|Does the program or institution require students, trainees, and/or staff (faculty) to comply with specific policies or practices related to the institution’s affiliation or purpose? Such policies or practices may include, but are not limited to, admissions, hiring, retention policies, and/or requirements for completion that express mission and values?||
Our interns come from graduate programs across the United States, often with an emphasis on pediatric, child clinical, or acute care experience.
In the last five years, 100 percent of our interns have been from PhD psychology graduate programs accredited by the American Psychological Association. Also, all of our students have had some experience working in a medical or child diagnostic setting prior to joining our program. Internship success is optimized when dissertations are completed prior to starting internship.
Our interns report that good clinical training in child and family interventions, experience conducting child and youth assessments, and training within a medical facility prepared them for quick acclimation to our program.

We value comprehensive and diverse training experiences with children, adolescents and families including delivery of empirically-based treatment, assessment, work with diverse patient populations, application of research methods to clinically-relevant topics, DEI-related training, community engagement, and leadership activities. We also value personal characteristics that demonstrate professionalism, self-awareness, adaptability, intellectual curiosity, resilience, collaboration, empathy, ethical decision making, and cultural humility.
For the behavioral medicine track, experience in medical settings including multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary medical environments is beneficial. Clinical child interns often have experience with collaborative clinical work in schools or clinics. We anticipate acute care interns may have experience with trauma-informed care and in intensive outpatient and / or psychiatric inpatient settings.

We will offer an optional in-person tour on January 29, 2024, for any applicants who interviewed and feel it would be helpful for them in their decision-making process to see our facilities and / or the city. We understand that not all applicants will be able to or will choose to attend this tour. In order to remove bias from the selection process, we will submit our rankings after the interviews, but before the in-person tour so that not attending the tour does not impact an applicant's evaluation.

Interns are selected according to APPIC procedures. By the beginning of January, applicants will be ranked and a list will be submitted to the Internship Match Program. This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant.
Following receipt of computerized match results, candidates will be contacted by telephone by the training director. Interns will be asked to submit to the required credentialing process (see credentialing section above) prior to the start of the internship.
