Your Rights & Responsibilities

Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology

We provide a training experience where interns learn both about the clinical work of a practicing psychologist, and about themselves as clinicians, so interns who are highly committed to supervision and to self-reflection do especially well here.

Our Approach to Diversity and Care

  • We Believe Diversity is a Strength
  • Eliminating Disparities in Care
  • Continuous Learning and Growth
  • We Believe Diversity is a Strength

    We consider the diversity of our community a strength, and our aim is to provide affirming and culturally responsive care to every member of our community. We acknowledge that white supremacy, racism, xenophobia, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and other-isms are social diseases that are embedded in our country’s historical and current culture. We consider these to be public health crises because these social diseases are known to impact wellness and lead to health disparities.

    Eliminating Disparities in Care

    We know that living through repeated and systemic trauma and risk due to these social diseases can lead to feeling chronically unsafe, and impact mental and physical health. This in turn impacts academic performance, relationships, athletic performance, and overall involvement in the University.

    We are committed to identifying and eliminating the disparities in care for those with diverse identities.

    Continuous Learning and Growth

    As a staff, we actively engage our hearts and minds to identify and challenge our biases, with a commitment to continuous learning and growth. We examine our practices and policies to identify ways we are colluding with racism and other forms of discrimination.

    We commit to devoting intentional time and energy to these objectives across all our services.
