Psychology Internship Training

Clinical Rotations

The UMMC Psychology Internship Training program offers clinical rotations in both child and adult emphasis areas. Interns are encouraged to participate in rotations in both emphasis areas.

The internship year is divided into 3 four-month rotations. Each rotation serves different populations and provides unique services. Rotation assignments are made based on interns' rankings and program faculty input based on intern training needs and clinical goals. Interns provide rankings twice during the year, prior to the start of internship and in October, to allow for experiences with the first early rotation to be considered before making choices for the remainder of the training year. Clinical supervision and training are conducted on a one-on-one or small group basis within each clinical rotation.

Some rotations offer both half-time (14 hrs/week) and full-time (28 hrs/week) experiences, as well as several mini-rotation (4-8 hrs/week) opportunities. The rotation descriptions provide specific information about which options are available for each rotation and are grouped by child or adult emphasis areas.
