JWestHello everyone!  On behalf of the entire Psychology Training Program I want to extend a warm welcome to our internship and fellowship programs in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Rochester Medical Center.  We will be conducting Zoom interview days that will include an orientation to the program, interviews with faculty, and time with current trainees to ask questions and learn about their experience. We have also created video 'tours' hosted by trainees for each track of the internship (Adult and Child and Adolescent) and for the fellowship program. We hope that together with the website, these videos will help you decide if our program offers what you are looking for in advanced training.  And, if so, that you will submit an application.  We look forward to hearing from you. ~Jennifer West, Ph.D.
