Doctoral Internship Program in Clinical Psychology at Mount Sinai-Behavioral Health Center

The Psychology Division of the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai-Behavioral Health Center offers a yearlong, fulltime doctoral internship in clinical psychology. It is available to matriculated doctoral students in clinical and counseling psychology programs accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). Our program, formerly housed at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, has been reaccredited by the APA’s Accreditation Council in 2015 for seven years, through 2022. Due to COVID-19, accreditation of the Mount Sinai-Behavioral Health Center internship program has been extended by the APA until the next site visit is possible. Please direct any questions related to the program’s accredited status to the Commission on Accreditation listed below.
