Clinical Psychology Predoctoral Internship

Our predoctoral internship provides broad-based clinical training for the general practice of professional psychology. Our goal is to train new professionals to provide and develop appropriate, effective treatments for culturally diverse populations. Based in UNM’s Health Sciences Center, the program integrates the main components of evidence-based practice as outlined by the American Psychological Association.

These include:

  • Research
  • Clinical expertise
  • Understanding of culture, context, individual and preferences

Our program has three tracks with emphases in:

  • Clinical Child
  • Pediatric Neuropsychology
  • Early Childhood.

All the tracks share a multicultural, developmental, contextual and interdisciplinary training philosophy. There are educational opportunities in inpatient, outpatient, and community settings. We serve a highly diverse population of children, adolescents, and families, many with a history of trauma. In addressing cultural responsiveness, our program emphasizes both process and outcome. We focus as much on the provider as on the client.
