Program Setting

The Clinical Psychology Internship Program at Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West hospitals is designed to provide interns with a year-long, intensive, clinical experience with diverse patients in a wide range of clinical settings.

The Hospital Center is an urban, not-for-profit, voluntary, teaching hospital, of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai - located in Manhattan, on the upper west side (Mount Sinai Morningside) and in midtown (Mount Sinai West). Together with Mount Sinai Beth Israel and New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West are part of the Mount Sinai Health System. The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary system, which includes two emergency rooms (with Comprehensive Psychiatry Emergency Programs), three inpatient units, two outpatient clinics (child and adult), a therapeutic school and milieu for adolescents, a parent-infant intervention program, community outreach services, intensive outpatient treatment programs, specialty psychiatric clinics, a full continuum-of-care substance abuse facility, a dedicated clinical research unit, and a consultation-liaison psychiatry service (throughout the Hospital Center). There are more than fifty staff psychologists who participate in the Internship Program, as supervisors, administrators, clinicians, teachers, and researchers. Adjunct psychology faculty members also teach and supervise in the Internship Program.
