Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology



The Psychology Internship in Health Service Psychology provides training to prepare doctoral students for professional practice as psychologists in health service settings. We employ a competency-based approach to education and training that focuses on biological, psychological, social, and cultural aspects of health and behavior.
