Geisinger Clinical Psychology internships are a pivotal component of your transition from student to professional. By offering two tracks, this internship lets you specialize in the field of study that interests you the most. All programs have broad-based training at their core. However, each track has exclusive experiences the other tracks do not. The following tracks are offered:

Adult clinical and health psychology track

Pediatric primary care behavioral health track

Didactic seminars

Clinical psychology internships typically have a seminar component. At Geisinger, you’ll attend a series of formal seminars and case conferences designed to complement the clinical components of the program. Interns across all tracks will attend some seminars together, as the content will be meaningful to all learners at this stage of development and map onto certain American Psychological Association (APA) profession-wide competencies focusing on professional development and research. Other seminars are designed to provide more in-depth, track-specific training. Content areas generally include the following:

  • Professional development
  • Ethical issues
  • Cultural and individual factors
  • Evidence based practice
  • Supervision
  • Research
  • Clinical skills training
  • Clinical health psychology/integrated care for adult vs. pediatric populations 

Clinical assignments permitting, you’ll attend monthly Psychiatry Grands Rounds, which include presentations by Geisinger faculty and external speakers. And you’re encouraged to attend conferences sponsored by other medical center departments as your schedule allows. You are encouraged to prepare and deliver a presentation during Psychiatry Grand Rounds or another Geisinger-sponsored educational event approved by the internship training directors.
