Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology


Welcome to the University of South Florida (USF) Health Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology training program, located in the Departments of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at the USF Morsani College of Medicine.  We are pleased to offer an outstanding training program in professional psychology within a large, urban academic medical center. The program is designed as a full-time, 12-month pre-doctoral internship beginning Aug. 12, 2019, and ending on Aug. 7, 2020, providing 2,000 hours of clinical training.  We embrace a Scientist-Practitioner Model of education wherein interns follow a set of established methods for producing data to undergird the practice of professional psychology, and the best practice of professional psychology is based on applications of these data. As such, interns will utilize data-driven methods to provide high-quality assessments, interventions, and progress monitoring across a variety of clinical and community settings.


The internship program is a non-member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) and participates in the APPIC match process. The internship program is not accredited by the AmericanPsychological Association but is in the process of completing an Intent to Apply and we are fully committed to working toward accreditation but make no guarantee that this internship will be accredited.
