The internship in clinical psychology is a 12 month, full-time appointment in the Division of Psychology of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at The University of Kansas Medical Center. The internship is directed toward fulfilling the internship portion of the requirement of APA-accredited doctoral degrees in clinical and counseling psychology. The internship program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association. There are four positions with similar core clinical and didactic experiences, with two positions designated as the Comprehensive Track and two positions designated as the Underserved Populations Track.
The internship provides the opportunity for the interns to develop competence in the practical application of the knowledge base of clinical psychology to clinical problems presenting in a broad variety of programs of this academic medical center. Our approach is intended to develop interns who will emerge from this experience in route to becoming clinical psychologists- independent professionals possessing the ability to assess and treat the clinical psychological aspects of patients with a wide range of common mental disorders. The successful intern will achieve the ability to utilize psychological principles to develop and carry out essential plans of clinical psychological treatment.
The internship operates out of the Division of Psychology, which is a component of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. It is supported by the Department, The University of Kansas Medical School, and The University of Kansas Hospital. Two of its four internship positions are supported by a grant from the Health Services and Resource Administration (HRSA). The Medical Center's basic functions include research, education, patient care, and community service.
