Date Program Tables are updated: 08/31/2018
Briefly describe in narrative form important information to assist potential applicants in assessing their likely fit with your program. This description must be consistent with the program’s policies on intern selection and practicum and academic preparation requirements:
The EVMS Clinical Psychology Internship Program is organized around major, minor, and outpatient rotations. The educational model requires that psychology interns concentrate their activities in their primary area of emphasis while on their major rotations in Adult Medical Inpatient, Pediatric Behavioral Medicine,Adult Psychiatric Inpatient. Major rotations can be supplemented with minor rotations (i.e. concentrated experiences in specialized areas) if desired. Didactics and activities at the outpatient training clinic a ½ day a week round out the total internship experience.
In summary, the internship consists of four primary components: (1) major rotations; (2) minor rotations; (3) an outpatient psychotherapy caseload; and (4) a series of seminars. Major rotations reflect particular training emphases and are either in Adult Medical Inpatient, based at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH); Pediatric Behavioral Medicine located at the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters (CHKD); or Adult Psychiatric Inpatient, with inpatient forensic and civil psychology services provided at Eastern State Hospital (ESH). All major rotations provide for a variety of brief therapy experiences, interdisciplinary team collaboration, consultation and opportunities for conducting mood, personality, cognitive, intellectual, and/or neuropsychological assessments, although depending on the site, the relative balance and nature of these activities will vary. The adult inpatient experiences at SNGH center on the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Unit and the Consultation Liaison service, while the focus of the adult inpatient experiences at ESH is in Acute Admissions and Forensics. The Pediatric Behavioral Medicine training occurs within inpatient and outpatient clinics at the local children’s hospital.
