Child & Adolescent Psychology Externships
NYU School of Medicine offers eight predoctoral externships that provide advanced training in seven subspecialties of child and adolescent psychology at the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, as well as locations on Long Island and in New Jersey.
