Clinical Psychology Internship Application
The NYU Langone–Bellevue Clinical Psychology Internship accepts 14 interns a year: 7 in the Adult Psychology Track, 4 in the Child and Adolescent Psychology Track, and 3 in the Forensic Psychology Track.
Applicants are required to have completed a minimum of three years’ experience in a professional psychology doctoral program, which must include experience in psychotherapy and psychological assessment. In addition, applicants need the approval of their program’s director of clinical training. All coursework and comprehensive exams must be completed before beginning the internship, and dissertation proposals should be defended before beginning the internship.
We accept applications from advanced students in good standing enrolled in American Psychology Association– or Canadian Psychological Association–approved doctoral programs in clinical or counseling psychology.
The program does not require that applicants receive a minimum number of hours of direct contact intervention or direct contact assessment.
The application deadline is November 1, at 12:00AM, EST, for admission on July 1 of the following year.
Applicants must complete all sections of the online Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) Application for Psychology Internship (AAPI).
Please note the following additional instructions when completing the AAPI for our program:
- Select site number 1476 when completing the “Selecting a Designation” portion of the AAPI.
- In the cover letter portion of the AAPI, indicate which one of the three internship tracks you are applying for; you may apply to one track only. Indicate whether you are applying to the Adult Psychology Track (program code number 147611), the Child and Adolescent Psychology Track (program code number 147612), or the Forensic Psychology Track (program code number 147613).
- Submit three letters of recommendation from faculty or supervisors familiar with your clinical work.
Each application is carefully reviewed by our faculty with an eye toward identifying candidates who have prior experience or have demonstrated interest in working as part of a multidisciplinary team and in settings that serve populations similar to those served by NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and our affiliated sites.
We conduct interviews between late November and early January. The interview is a chance for applicants to meet our faculty, view our facilities, ask questions, and meet our current interns. In addition, the interview process allows faculty to get a sense of the fit of an applicant for the program, including interests, personality, and clinical and supervisory style. We notify applicants of their interview status by December 15.
Psychology interns matched to our program are required to complete personnel processing, which includes a physical examination, mandatory drug screening, and child abuse registry screening before beginning the internship.
