Child & Adolescent Psychology Internship
NYU School of Medicine offers a Child and Adolescent Psychology Internship at two locations: NYU Langone’s Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue.
The internship, open to advanced-level predoctoral students enrolled in a doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology, provides intensive training in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, young adults, and families in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
As an intern, you gain experience with the clinical, legal, and ethical issues involved in documenting mental health services in medical settings. Furthermore, you develop a range of diagnostic skills, such as performing interviews, taking patient histories, performing risk assessments, and formulating diagnoses.
You also become familiar with numerous psychological interventions, including individual, group, and family psychotherapy, environmental and crisis interventions, and behavioral medicine techniques.
In addition to specializing in focused, research-based treatment modalities and assessment techniques, you participate in an extensive didactic program to augment your clinical training.
Offered through a partnership between the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the Department of Psychiatry, child and adolescent psychology is a track in the NYU–Bellevue Psychology Internship Program and is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association.
