NYU-Bellevue Psychology Internship Program

The mission of the NYU-Bellevue Clinical Psychology Internship Program, accredited by the American Psychological Association, is to prepare doctoral candidates for careers as psychologists in a variety of academic, clinical and research settings in both the public and private sectors.

Designed in the Practitioner-Scholar Model, the Program consists of three tracks and aims to facilitate a smooth transition from doctoral study to professional functioning, teaching advanced clinical skills that integrate theory and practice. Interns in all tracks carry caseloads of adults, adolescents, children, groups and families.

The Adult Psychology Track provides broad-based training in a variety of clinical modalities with a wide demographic range of patients.

The Child and Adolescent Psychology Track combines training in child and adolescent cognitive-behavioral, evidence-based therapies with clinical experiences treating adults.

The Forensic Psychology Track combines the resources of Bellevue Hospital Center and Kirby Forensic Psychiatric Center, providing exposure to the wide range of clinical issues unique to forensic psychology.

All psychology interns, regardless of track, obtain advanced training in assessment, diagnosis, and numerous intervention and treatment modalities. The Program is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct.

The NYU-Bellevue clinical population is extremely diverse, including individuals from an array of cultures, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations and socio-economic levels. The Program deeply respects and attends to the many cultural issues that come into play when working with so broad a population.

All interns have opportunities to gain expertise in areas including childhood development, adolescent behavior, individual adult psychotherapy, neuropsychology, health psychology, inpatient and outpatient assessment and treatment, as well as family and group psychotherapy. Supervision of psychotherapy is conducted according to numerous theoretical orientations including brief dynamic, cognitive, behavioral, and psychodynamic.

The Program takes pride in its long and distinguished history of training fine psychologists who make valuable contributions to clinical, academic, research and public policy arenas, both nationally and internationally.
