Clinical Psychology Internship Adult Psychology Track
The NYU Langone–Bellevue Clinical Psychology Internship Adult Psychology Track offers broad-based training in a variety of clinical modalities to treat adults, adolescents, and children.
Adult Track Rotation Requirements
Interns on this track complete three four-month clinical rotations and a year-long elective, and participate in various outpatient services, psychological assessments, supervision, and didactic seminars.
In collaboration with the internship director, interns rank their rotation and elective preferences at the beginning of the training year. At least one rotation must be on an adult inpatient service.
Psychology interns also select an elective, which allows exposure to specialty services offered at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue. On rotation and elective, interns perform a combination of assessment, consultation, and direct clinical care duties under supervision, with increasing levels of autonomy.
The track offers a diverse outpatient psychotherapy caseload, representing a spectrum of demographic and cultural backgrounds, clinical presentations, and treatment needs. As an intern, you treat seven outpatient adults, one child, one adolescent, and one family, or co-lead an adult group with a staff clinician.
Our staff provides six hours of supervision per week. Interns are assigned individual supervisors for each rotation and elective experience, each outpatient psychotherapy case, and each psychological assessment case. Interns choose to participate in either the Family Studies Program or to co-lead an adult outpatient group.
Adult Track Didactics
Interns on the Adult Psychology Track participate in a weekly Case Conceptualization Seminar, which is composed of didactics and case presentations. Following each of the didactic presentations, interns present their own individual outpatient cases to practice case conceptualization and application of techniques. The seminar includes readings that enhance understanding and application of the theories and techniques presented. Topics include conceptualization of psychosis from psychodynamic and cognitive perspectives, as well as the treatment and conceptualization of personality disorders from various theoretical frameworks.
