Psychology Internship at California Pacific Medical Center
The internship program at CPMC strives to provide depth and breadth of clinical experience and training in a one-year pre-doctoral internship. Excellence in training is promoted from within an active and stimulating medical center setting. All interns acquire the skills associated with differentiating psychiatric diagnoses, performing intakes, conducting psychotherapy, and crisis management.
CPMC provides a strong academic program, including seminars and case conferences with master clinicians. The intellectually stimulating atmosphere is fostered by collegial support, and interns are encouraged to share their work and ideas in a non-competitive manner. Supervision is considered a foundation of the training program. Multiple supervisors are provided and the goal is to foster an in-depth understanding of patients and to further the interns’ personal and professional growth.
Interns work with a population of diverse clients who represent a range of ethnicities, diagnoses, levels of psychopathology, and socioeconomic status. The hospital accepts public funding and has a mission to provide comprehensive services. The training program furthers this mission by providing high-quality psychological services to patients whose financial resources are limited.
There are various training opportunities within the psychology internship program including Adult Outpatient, Child Outpatient, Employee Assistance Program, Couples Therapy, Adult Inpatient, Skilled Nursing Facility, and Neurology. Additional information about these services can be found in the Tracks document.
The internship year begins on July 1, 2013 and concludes on June 30, 2014.
Post doctoral applicants will also be considered for the CPMC psychology training positions. Unfortunately, there is no stipend for the post doctoral fellowship. The application process and timelines are the same as the pre-doctoral internship guidelines; however, early interviews and decisions may be made if necessary.
This internship is a member of CAPIC and interns collect hours toward psychology licensure. We will be in attendance at the yearly CAPIC fair on November 2, 2012 where you can meet us and ask questions.
An informational open house will also be held at the Outpatient Clinic: 2323 Sacramento St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94115 on January 10, 2013@ 7:00- 8:30pm. Please contact the Department's Administrative Assistant, Stephanie Espinosa if you have any further questions at 415-600-3247, or email email@example.com
