The Clinical Predoctoral Internship Program in the Department of Rehabilitation, Icahn School of Medicine and The Mount Sinai Health System, provides training in clinical psychology as it is applied within a rehabilitation medicine setting. The Program has been in existence since 1994 and has been a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) since 1994. The internship has been continuously accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) since 1997 and is currently accredited through 2018.
The Program follows a professional practitioner model of clinical training, incorporates 2,000 hours of supervised clinical experience, and meets licensing requirements for one year of pre-doctoral supervised clinical training. Six predoctoral interns will participate in a 12-month training program in 2013-2014. To date, the program has successfully graduated more than 60 interns. A full-time faculty of seven licensed psychologists supervises the interns. The program is designed to expand a trainee's basic clinical psychology skills along with focused training in rehabilitation psychology and clinical neuropsychology.
