We are delighted you found our website and may consider joining us in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Rochester Medical Center. We offer an APA accredited* Doctoral Internship with two tracks (Adult, and Child/Adolescent), and an APA accredited* Postdoctoral Fellowship with two tracks (Primary Care Family, and Child/Adolescent).
Our Psychology training programs prepare outstanding clinical psychologists for careers in patient care, teaching, scientific research, and administration. We strive to build competency in diagnosing and treating psychological distress, with diverse populations, in a variety of clinical and community settings. We encourage all of our trainees to develop supervision, research and administration acumen, and provide many unique opportunities for such growth.
The core values that guide our programs reflect our dedication to academic excellence, community connection, and collegiality.
Core Values of the Clinical Psychology Training Programs:
- Provide culturally sensitive, person-centered care to individuals and families experiencing psychological distress or mental disorders across the lifespan
- Embrace an interdisciplinary approach to psychological services, education, and research, while also developing each trainee’s professional identity as a psychologist
- Integrate science and practice in a manner that promotes effective psychological assessment and intervention approaches in the populations we serve
- Foster community and university partnerships that are mutually responsive and beneficial
- Cultivate a supportive, collaborative work environment that fosters free expression of ideas and promotes optimal professional development
