Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology

Welcome to the University of South Florida (USF) Health Doctoral Internship in Professional Psychology training program, located in the Department 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 inters follow a set of established methods for producing data to undergo 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 vision of the USF Morsani College of Medicine Diversity and Enrichment Program is to encourage and promote an environment that welcomes and embraces diversity in health professions.

Our diversity initiatives and strategies are designed to attract, develop, and advance the most talented interns regardless of their race, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender, disability status or any other dimension of diversity. We embrace a broad definition of diversity and aim to create an inclusive environment that welcomes and embraces each intern's unique talents and attributes. Our commitment to diversity extends to enlarging the pool of qualified under-represented minorities and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds; supporting a holistic review process; retraining admitted minority disadvantaged interns; and coordinating diversity in health psychology education activities involving faculty, staff, students, and interns.
