General Training Model
Thank you for your interest in clinical psychology internship training at Tulane University School of Medicine. Our predoctoral internship program offers training in General Clinical Psychology with additional concentration in specific areas of clinical psychology. All interns receive training in assessment and diagnosis; interventions, including empirically supported treatment models; consultation, evaluation, and supervision, all with a focus on delivering ethical services that are sensitive to individual and cultural diversity. We adhere to the scientist-practitioner model of training and both support and demonstrate scholarly approaches of knowledge acquisition and analysis.
Our program offers two tracks: Adult Psychology and Child Psychology. Within each track, intern applicants also specify an area of concentration. In the Adult Track, the concentration is either Behavioral Medicine or Forensic Psychology. In the Child Track, the concentration is either Pediatric Psychology or Infant Mental Health. Applicants may specify an interest in being considered for either concentration within the Adult or Child Tracks, but they should state a preference.
Two Tracks are offered currently:
I. Adult Track (applicants may apply for either or both areas of focus (I.1. or I.2.)
II. Child Track (applicants may apply for either or both areas of focus (II.1. or II.2.)
Unique program codes for the match process are provided for each of these.
