Our programs are designed to provide trainees with the knowledge, skills, and experience they need to become competent and compassionate mental health providers.


Training Opportunities

Advanced Practicum

Our advanced practicum program is designed to support graduate students who are working to build a strong foundation of diagnostic and therapeutic skills early in their doctoral psychology programs.

Students will gain hands-on experience in providing individual and group therapy under the supervision of licensed psychologists. They will also participate in didactic training, case consultation, and other professional development activities.

Internship

The North Memorial Health-University of St. Thomas Joint Doctoral Psychology Internship Program is co-sponsored by North Memorial Health and the University of St. Thomas Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services.

Fully APA-Accredited since 2018, the Internship provides a wide range of training experiences that allow for working with demographically diverse populations within multiple service locations in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area.

Moreover, interns have the opportunity to gain valuable experience of serving clients across the continuum of care, from acute hospital-based services to outpatient community mental health. Finally, Interns have the opportunity to develop competencies in the area of Clinical Supervision, through providing direct supervision to masters-level trainees.

The North Memorial Health-University of St. Thomas Internship aims to prioritize multiculturalism and diversity in its training, welcoming eligible applicants representing all forms of diversity.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship

Our post-doctoral fellowship program is designed for psychologists who have recently completed their doctoral training and are seeking additional training in a specialized area of mental health as they develop their professional identify.

Fellows will receive individualized mentorship/supervision from experts in their field and will have the opportunity to hone their clinical skills in preparation for licensure and independent practice.
