About the Clinical Psychology Internship Program

Dear Applicant:

Welcome to the website of the Clinical Psychology Internship in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill.  Thank you for your interest.  

The UNC School of Medicine Clinical Psychology Internship teaches pre-doctoral students to be well-rounded and competent professional psychologists. Our training philosophy emphasizes broad-based training and experience, within a scientist-practitioner model of professional development. Our trainees work with individuals with an enormous variety of mental health, medical, and developmental problems; clinical services are provided in a wide range of inpatient, outpatient, prison, and community contexts. The Internship’s training model is designed to take advantage of the strengths of our institutions and our faculty to insure that interns have a rich set of clinical experiences.

If you wish to apply to our internship for the 2018-2019 year, please download and review our Brochure, complete the AAPI Online application (www.appic.org), including a cover letter, CV, graduate transcripts, and three letters of reference.  In your cover letter, please let us know which of our six tracks are of interest to you.  The due date for the application is November 1, 2017.  

Please note that six tracks are being offered for 2018-2019: Behavioral Medicine, Clinical Forensic, CIDD, Clinical Child-Pediatrics, Clinical Child-Community, and TEACCH. We are not able to offer the Eating Disorders or the Women’s Mental Health positions in the upcoming year. As described in the Brochure, these clinical services will remain available as elective rotations for interns in the six tracks. 

Minority and bilingual applicants are encouraged to apply.
