Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program

Elizabeth McQuaid, PhD, ABPP, Director

The Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University provides training at the predoctoral level, for students interested in careers relevant to clinical science, research, and practice.  The overall training objectives of the program reflect a commitment to the development of psychologists who will provide and apply scientific knowledge to human behavior and who advance clinical science research.  The primary goal of the Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program is to ensure the development of proficiency across the basic areas of clinical psychology including assessment, therapy, consultation, and research.  A second goal of the program is to provide a beginning concentration in a particular area of psychology.  A central mission of the Clinical Psychology Training Consortium is to promote diversity of perspective and experience in its pursuit of academic excellence in research, teaching and service.

The Clinical Psychology Internship offers intensive training in four specific areas (tracks) of clinical psychology: (1) Adult; (2) Child; (3) Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine; and (4) Neuropsychology. Specific details on the rotations available in each track can be found in the Rotations link .  

All clinical psychology residents are admitted to the training program within a track, or area of emphasis, which represents their career focus or interests.

Many of the predoctoral clinical psychology residents stay at Brown to complete their fellowship training.

This internship is accredited by the American Psychological Association.
