About The Program

This is a generalist program, which means there are no tracks, and interns will have three different four-month rotations, some of which may be outside their primary interests. The program emphasizes evidence-based practices. If possible, all interns will have some child and some adult experiences as well as inpatient experience. All interns carry one or more individual therapy patients over the year in 4 hours a week dedicated to “intern clinic”; interns who wish may also do some assessment during that time. Interns also receive 2 – 3 hours per week of didactics. Training involves scaffolding and frequent contact with supervisors. Peer supervision is encouraged as is collaboration with trainees/faculty from other disciplines. Each intern gets a minimum of 2 hours a week of individual, 1 hour of research  and 1 hour of group supervision, including diversity presentations, case presentations, journal club, and other topics.

Rotations include:

Inpatient at the UT John S Dunn Behavioral Sciences Campus (adult – 2 positions, child- 1, juvenile justice – 1)

Outpatient at the UT Behavioral and Biomedical Sciences building and the Spring Branch Community Health Center: Community – 3; Child Outpatient – 2; Developmental Neuropsychology – 1; Lifespan Autism – 1; Trauma – 2; and Addictions – 1.
