Interns in the Adult Track will complete four rotations of 3-month duration. Based on our 2 federal grants funding, some interns will be required to rotate through one of the following two rotations: the Outpatient Integrated Care rotation or the Adult Consultation Liaison service to provide interns exposure to the integration of behavioral health and primary care. Other interns will be required to rotate through the Dual Diagnosis Unit and the Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program or the Adult Consultation Liaison service to provide interns exposure to the integration of behavioral health and Opioid Use Disorders/Substance Use Disorders (OUD/SUD) prevention and treatment services. Interns can choose three other rotations, including the child and adolescent rotations. Some interns will have the opportunity to participate in all clinical opportunities. Preferences will be taken into consideration.
In addition to the above-mentioned inpatient work, the intern will also carry a caseload of 5 outpatient cases, including individuals, group and couples/family work. The majority of the intern’s caseload will include adult psychotherapy, although there may be an opportunity for child work as well. The intern will also be completing intakes throughout a portion of the year through the adult outpatient clinic.
In addition to individual and group supervision on rotation an for outpatient cases, the Adult Track interns will attend a number of didactic training seminars from within the psychology and psychiatry divisions, including weekly staff meeting, testing seminar, case conference, and other specialty seminar series.
The ideal applicant for this program will have a range of previous clinical experiences with adults that include or are similar to the following: hospital inpatient work, day treatment program work, work with severely and persistently mentally ill patients, and multiple assessment experiences resulting in several integrated assessment batteries. Furthermore, applicants should be hard-working, have excellent time management skills, desire work within a fast-paced urban hospital setting and be interested in gaining extensive knowledge in treatment of severely disturbed patients from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.
