Rotations include adult inpatient, child inpatient, adolescent inpatient, women’s forensic inpatient, consultation-liaison, and psychiatric emergency room. Psychological assessment is a significant part of our program, including objective, personality, neuropsychological and cognitive assessment. Throughout the year, interns are assigned outpatient individual (adults, children and adolescents), family, and group psychotherapy patients as well. We also provide didactics and a strong emphasis on supervision.
