Clinical Psychology Internship Program

Where training takes place


The UNC Psychology Internship is housed within the Department of Psychiatry in the School of Medicine. As such, the various clinical training opportunities within the internship are administered across several different sites (listed below). Many of the training opportunities take place at the UNC Medical Center; however, there are also several satellite clinic locations that are spread throughout the town of Chapel Hill (and in some of the rural counties in NC).

The intern offices are located at the UNC Medical Center as are the majority of the Program Coordinator and Supervisor offices.

The below map provides a snapshot of the various facilities and their locations. The interested applicant can use this map to get a better sense of where each satellite site might be in relation to the UNC Medical Center.

Chapel Hill and the Surrounding Area

The town of Chapel Hill is a university town and provides the advantages of small-town residential living. It is noted for its charm and beauty, along with the pleasantly mild climate. The proximity of the UNC Medical Center to the University Psychology Department as well as to Duke University (10 miles away) and North Carolina State University (30 miles away) provides an active professional environment. Colloquia and lectures at both UNC and Duke are open to our trainees.

There is an abundance of recreational facilities in this region. Chapel Hill has golf courses, tennis courts, a gymnasium, and two university swimming pools, as well as other swimming facilities.

In addition, the university holds a license from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a 230-acre peninsula on the western shore of Kerr Lake, a vast reservoir about 65 miles north of Chapel Hill with over 800 miles of shoreline. This tract is reserved for recreational use by the students, employees, and faculty of the university, where fishing, picnicking, camping, and boating are available. A public lake, Jordan Lake, is also nearby.
