B. Goals and Objectives


All interns are expected to acquire knowledge and develop skills consistent with the training philosophy of the program. Each intern gains experience in psychological assessment, intervention and consultation liaison service. Each intern will also participate in a specialized interdisciplinary training track and provide services consistent with that track during the internship year. Experience in working with professionals from other disciplines is a critical aspect of training. Sensitivity to cultural and individual diversity is also emphasized. Interns are provided the opportunity to work with individuals from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. The internship is also structured so that each intern gains experience with a population diverse in terms of age, gender, and presenting problems.
