Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center Predoctoral Psychology Internship Program
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center provides a predoctoral psychology internship for two doctoral candidates in either Clinical or School Psychology PhD or PsyD programs. We are members of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) and fully abide by all of their policies.
The internship experience comprises a 40-hour week with a combination of direct clinical services with adolescents ranging in age from 12 to 24 years. Adolescents are seen individually, in groups and in family settings. Psychological testing is an important part of the internship as the adolescents are in school and often present with signs of either Learning Disorders or ADHD. There are weekly didactics, which focus on all areas of adolescent development. There are weekly grand rounds and other in-service meetings, which the interns are expected to attend. There is weekly individual and group supervision. The interns supervise the externs as part of their training.
The predoctoral internship is for one year and begins in September. The stipend for the year is $20,000, and there are 21 paid personal time off days as well as eight major holidays. Health insurance is available.
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center of Mount Sinai Medical Center is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in our recruiting of all staff and trainees. Applications from qualified minority students are encouraged.
