About The Program

UTHealth Doctoral Psychology Internship Program is a Generalist training program that trains interns to work in multiple settings with experience across the lifespan. The five tracks available are Addiction (match number  229411), Trauma (match number 229413), Child and Adolescent (match number 229415), Adult Inpatient (match number 229411)  and Developmental/Assessment (match number 229414 ). Interns may apply to any of the tracks.  When matched to a track, the intern will be assigned 2 rotation blocks from that track and one from another track, in accordance with our Generalist training model. Application deadline is November 1, 2023.

The available tracks include:

Interns will have three different four-month rotations. Interns matched with a particular track will receive two of their three blocks from that track and one block from another track, in order to provide breadth of training. Intern preferences will be surveyed after matching and will be considered as much as possible.  However since not all tracks have the same number of positions, it is possible that some preferences cannot be accommodated.

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, as well as diversity presentations, case presentations, journal club, and other learning experiences.

Clients are drawn from the highly diverse Houston metro area and frequently include underserved populations. Applicants should indicate their interests in their cover letter. Interest and accomplishments in research and in work with various populations are highly valued.
