North Memorial Health-University of St. Thomas Joint Doctoral Psychology Internship Program

The North Memorial Health-University of St. Thomas Joint Doctoral Psychology Internship Program is co-sponsored by North Memorial Health (NMH) and the University of St. Thomas Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services (IPC). The Internship Program 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 gain the valuable experience of serving clients across the continuum of care, from acute hospital-based services to outpatient community mental health.

North Memorial Health

North Memorial Health (NMH) is a medical system serving the northwest Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area since 1954, with two hospitals, 27 specialty and primary care clinics, and community-based healthcare services. North Memorial’s Mental Health Services are primarily based in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, which includes an inpatient psychiatry unit, emergency department, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programming, and consultation/ rehabilitation psychology.  Increased mental health care access is provided at NMH primary care clinics and emergency behavioral medicine at the NMH Hospital and Maple Grove Hospital. Additional outpatient services such as psychiatric medication management, individual and group psychotherapy, Rule 25 chemical health assessment, and neuropsychological assessment round out the spectrum of mental health care. In keeping with its mission "to empower its customer baseto achieve their best health," North Memorial Health has also established partnerships with community-support programs and non-profit organizations such as Vail Place.

Across a diversity of clinical settings and demographic customer characteristics, mental health care at North Memorial emphasizes integrative, multidisciplinary behavioral health care. Psychologists collaborate as part of interprofessional teams, including psychiatry, medicine, nursing, social work, occupational therapy, and other allied professions. Promoting a recovery-based model of treatment, health, and wellness, NMH team members employ innovative and evidence-based interventions with a range of presenting concerns from serious mental illnesses to recovery from co-occurring disorders to trauma-related and adjustment disorders. In addition to housing one of four Level I Trauma Centers in the state of Minnesota, North Memorial Health takes a trauma-informed approach to mental health care.

Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services

The University of St. Thomas Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services (IPC) is a community-based clinic providing legal, social work, and psychological services to low-income and underinsured individuals in the Twin Cities metro. The IPC’s mission is to "advance social justice through service and advocacy with underserved individuals and communities through transformative educational experiences for our students." The IPC was established to provide practical, experiential learning experiences for students and is a joint effort by the School of Law, the Graduate School of Professional Psychology, and the St. Catherine-St. Thomas School of Social Work. Working collaboratively, law, psychology and social work students strive to meet the needs of underserved people while gaining valuable real-world experience. The IPC’s three services (Legal Services Clinic, Psychological Services Clinic, and Social Work Clinic) provide independent service and collaborate together to better serve individuals who present with complex situations. For example, an asylum seeker who experienced torture in his home country might need a lawyer to obtain legal immigration status, a therapist to address Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, as well as a social work case manager to navigate access to other social and medical services.

The Psychological Services unit of the IPC obtains referrals from a variety of community agencies and resources including community social service agencies, churches, schools, and mental health professionals. Mental health services include individual therapy, group therapy, couples/family therapy, career counseling, psychological testing, and the fully-adherent model of Dialectical Behavior Therapy.  The IPC does not bill clients for services. 

Across all Internship Program settings, training in multiculturalism and diversity is strongly emphasized.  The wide range of training activities and client populations present unique opportunities for experiential learning. Furthermore, both North Memorial Health and the University of St. Thomas have a deep commitment to empowering our clients and training providers to have the requisite knowledge, awareness/sensitivity, and skills to provide high quality services to our diverse populations.  See our Statement on Multiculturalism and Diversity in Training at the end of this document for a more thorough articulation of our philosophy and practices demonstrating our values.

Statement on Multiculturalism and Diversity in Training

Statement on Multiculturalism and Diversity in Training

The Internship Program is deeply committed to multiculturalism and diversity in training and supporting trainees who represent various forms of diversity. We believe that attention to issues of cultural and individual differences and diversity is central to ethical, competent, and compassionate practice. The Internship Program implements its training activities in accordance with the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (2017) and evidence based practice of psychology (EBPP; APA Presidential Task Force on Evidence-Based Practice, 2006), which call upon psychologists to integrate issues of culture and diversity into training and practice. This statement articulates the values and practices that comprise our sustained effort at providing high quality training in issues related to multiculturalism and our attention to diverse representation amongst our Interns and training faculty of diverse backgrounds. We view multicultural competence as a dynamic and life-long task. Therefore, the Internship Program’s training activities are not limited to those detailed here, and this document is amenable to revision.

Affirming Diversity & Promoting Empowerment

We affirm that all individuals are multicultural beings whose social identities and individual characteristics inform their worldviews, mental health and well-being, interpersonal interactions (including the therapeutic relationship), and one's position within institutional and sociohistorical contexts. The Internship Program defines cultural and individual differences and diversity as including, but not limited to, age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, language, national origin, acculturation, race, religion/spirituality, culture, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. We acknowledge the uniqueness of experience associated with multiple and/or intersecting identities. We understand that identity statuses may be visible or invisible. We recognize that certain groups are conferred unearned privilege, dominance, and power, whereas other social groups experience bias, prejudice, and societal disadvantage. We underscore that there are individual differences within any cultural group, and the individual is their best expert on their phenomenological experience. Informed by the preponderance of scientific literature on intergroup contact and prejudice (Pettigrew & Tropp, 2006), we understand that all individuals are prone to biases based on their social identifications. We further acknowledge that Psychology, as an institution, has at times in history played a role in the oppression of no dominant groups through means both explicit and implicit.

We believe that the profession of Psychology is ever evolving to better understand and meet the complex needs of individuals we serve and those in training. We consider the ways in which Psychology is in a unique position to promote social justice and individual empowerment, in line with the missions of both North Memorial Health and the University of St. Thomas. While acknowledging the experience and impact of historical and contemporary oppression, we simultaneously promote a strengths-based perspective. This perspective takes into account community-based resilience and culturally relevant protective factors and practices.

Our Approach to Multiculturalism and Diversity in Training

Multicultural competence and diversity is one of the Internship Program’s four aims, reflecting our belief that multicultural competence must be both integrated into the training of other profession-wide competencies while also deserving unique attention. Our approach to training in multicultural development focuses on increasing the following domains over the training year: 1) Knowledge, 2) Awareness/Sensitivity, and 3) Skills. These domains are integrated across various aspects of the training program, including but not limited to didactic trainings, individual and group supervision, experiential learning, and evaluation.

Multicultural Knowledge

We strongly believe that culturally-relevant knowledge is essential for multicultural competency. We see training in multicultural knowledge as both content and process based. Training in content-based cultural knowledge may focus on the values, beliefs, practices, experiences, and worldviews that may be unique to particular cultural groups. It also entails knowledge of empirical evidence and scholarly theories pertaining to clients’ various identifications. However, there are inherent limitations of focusing solely on a content-based approach, given the great number of diversity variables and individual differences within cultural groups. Thus, we also focus on training in the process of gathering cultural knowledge from the client and outside sources (e.g., research literature, supervision, consultation) to best serve the healthcare needs of individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Multicultural Awareness/Sensitivity

Awareness and sensitivity to multiculturalism and diversity are critical to developing multicultural competency, as this guide the process of gathering relevant knowledge and applying culturally-appropriate skills. Multicultural awareness is defined as an understanding of how one’s own personal identities and concomitant worldviews affect how they understand and interact with individuals (clients, supervisees, supervisors, other staff, etc.) who are both similar to and different from themselves. Multicultural sensitivity encompasses a dynamic attunement to multiple cultural variables, including one’s personal worldview, the worldview of the client, the interplay between therapist-client, and the context of the encounter. We believe that practicing awareness of self and sensitivity to others is a life-long task, and both Interns and training supervisors practice honing these faculties throughout the training year. Experiential learning and reflective supervision are the primary modalities for increasing multicultural awareness and sensitivity.

Multicultural Skills

The learning and application of culturally-appropriate skills is critical to multicultural competence, while also building upon the domains of multicultural knowledge and awareness/sensitivity. It encompasses the demonstration of cultural knowledge, awareness, and sensitivity in basic intervention, such as building rapport in the therapeutic relationship. It may also include application of concepts such as dynamic sizing, employing culture-specific skills, and obtaining consultation (Sue, Zane, Hall, & Berger, 2009). We believe that skillful practice in Psychology is fundamentally tied to multiculturalism and diversity. As with the previous two domains, the refinement of one’s multicultural skills is an ongoing part of professional development.

Methods for Training in Multiculturalism and Diversity

The Internship Program's training activities include multiple opportunities to promote the development of multicultural knowledge, awareness/sensitivity, and skills to navigate cultural and individual differences and diversity. The following methods demonstrate our deep commitment to these values.

Diverse Clinical Populations

Clinical experiences at all locations of the Internship provide rich opportunities to serve demographically diverse populations, including variables such as race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and age (see table below for a summary of recent statistics of our service populations). North Memorial Health is adjacent to communities with racial/ethnic diversity and a greater percentage of socioeconomic disadvantage than the rest of Hennepin County, thus providing opportunities to consider the role of these statuses on health and development. The Interprofessional Center for Legal and Counseling Services’ (IPC) mission is to serve low income and underinsured individuals. Some of the IPC’s clients are also immigrants seeking support for applications for asylum. Exposure to demographic diversity provides opportunities to increase Interns' awareness/sensitivity to multicultural issues and to apply knowledge and skills acquired during didactic trainings. The ample opportunities to experience contact with cultural diversity is a unique strength of the training program and is consistent with the well-established literature on intergroup contact and reducing prejudice and bias in individuals.

Didactic Training

Didactic trainings and seminars provide opportunities for Interns to increase content-based knowledge, process the development of awareness/sensitivity, and explore culturally-appropriate interventions and skills. Issues around intersecting areas of culture and diversity are integrated within the regular seminars: Intern Seminar, DBT Consultation, and Supervision of Supervision. In particular, Multicultural Seminar is a regular, dedicated learning opportunity that includes didactic modalities on various multicultural topics and is regularly open to other staff members as well. Learning elements include assigned readings, review of scientific evidence, multimedia, case presentations, and discussion. Guest speakers and site visits augment training activities to represent cultural and interprofessional diversity.

Supervision & Consultation

In individual supervision, group supervision, and consultation meetings, Interns are expected to reflect on and articulate their own attitudes, biases, and conflicts surrounding cultural variables and individual differences in their clinical work and within supervisory relationships. They are also expected to demonstrate awareness/sensitivity to the impacts of power differentials, privilege, and oppression on clients and their presenting concerns.

Commitment to Diversity Representation

Commitment to Training Diverse Individuals

The Internship Program encourages applications from individuals from diverse backgrounds. We seek Interns who share the Program’s commitment to multiculturalism and diversity and whose applications explicitly state these among their internship training goals. We will provide reasonable accommodations to Interns based on their identified cultural practices and/or disabilities.

Valuing Diversity and Inclusion Within Our Teams

We value diversity amongst our colleagues and strive for inclusion in every team/staff setting. Our workplaces represent diversity with respect to age, gender, race/ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, and other visible and non-visible cultural categories. Both co-sponsoring agencies of the Internship Program, North Memorial Health and the University of St. Thomas are Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employers.

Non-Discrimination and Fair Treatment

The Internship Program commits to non-discrimination and fair treatment of all Interns, supervisors, other training faculty, contributors, and other stakeholders. It avoids any actions that would restrict program access or completion on grounds that are irrelevant to success in graduate training or the profession. Concerns about possible discrimination or unfair treatment should follow the outlined grievance procedures outlined in the Due Process and Grievance Policy.

Ongoing Assessment and Improvement

Interns and training faculty are encouraged to provide the Training Directors and the Internship Program with candid feedback about their experiences in training, particularly with respect to issues of multiculturalism and diversity. Mechanisms for accountability are built into multiple levels of evaluation as well (i.e., embedded within broad profession-wide competencies on trainee evaluations, supervisor evaluations, and Internship Program evaluations). The Training Committee reviews all feedback about the program and makes sustained efforts to provide quality training to diverse interns and around multiculturalism and diversity. Furthermore, we commit to ongoing efforts at promoting diversity and inclusion within our team/staff settings.

Training Term and Stipend

The Internship is designed to be a one-year, full-time, 2,000-hour training experience beginning in late-August. Interns are expected to commit 40-50 hours per week to the internship, depending upon individual training needs. In accordance with APPIC and APA standards, successful completion of internship requirements must take place in no less than one calendar year and no more than two calendar years.  APPIC guidelines, which provide parameters for the internship experience, specify that interns must complete at least 25% of time in direct service (500 hours for a 2000-hour internship) during the internship year. It should be noted that these are direct-service contact hours, such as   individual psychotherapy, couples/family counseling, group psychotherapy, psycho-educational or outreach presentations to groups, consultation of a psychological nature, provision of clinical supervision, and/or face-to-face administration of psychological assessments.

Stipend

The Internship Program is primarily designed to meet the training needs of doctoral students rather than the provisions of services for each organization. Interns are not considered employees of NMH or UST. To provide financial support to Interns during the training, the internship offers an annual stipend/scholarship of $30,000. University of St. Thomas Interns are required to register for 3 credits of tuition. The stipend is intended to help offset the cost of this tuition and provide extra funds to allow the Intern to purchase health insurance should that be needed since health benefits are not available through the Internship Program. The stipend/scholarship is disbursed in one lump sum each term as follows: $12,000 in Fall semester/J-Term, $9,000 in Spring semester, and $9,000 in Summer as long as the Intern is registered for the term.

NOTE:  This paragraph applies only to Interns who are University of St. Thomas students.  Interns who match through Phase II of the Match would not be University of St. Thomas students; and therefore, there would be no tuition or fees to which the Business Office would first apply the stipend/scholarship monies. The UST Business Office will first apply these funds to any tuition and fees on the Intern's student account and, following that, will distribute the remaining funds through an eRefund account, which the Intern must set up in advance of such distribution. The UST Business Office can assist Interns if they do not already have an eRefund account set up. 

Since the stipend is a scholarship, there is a possibility that it may have implications for other financial aid for which an Intern may choose to apply during the internship year. Typically, if an Intern is enrolled in at least 3 credits for a term, they are eligible to be considered for federal student loans and any previous federal student loan would stay in "in-school loan deferment" status during the year. If a student is enrolled in less than 3 credits, they likely have an option of applying for a private education loan, if desired. There is no guarantee of federal financial aid or private educational loans being received. The Intern would have to apply like any other student. There are many components that the lending institutions take into consideration when considering eligibility. Questions about financial aid should be addressed to the University of St. Thomas Financial Aid Office at www.stthomas.edu/financialaid/graduate or to the Intern's home university program, if the Intern is not a University of St. Thomas student. 

Internship Application and Selection Procedures

To be eligible for the Internship, applicants must be currently enrolled in a counseling or clinical psychology doctoral program accredited by the American Psychological Association or Canadian Psychological Association. The Internship requires a minimum of 250 direct contact practicum hours. Applicants with 1000 or more practicum hours total are preferred. Applicants must also be deemed eligible for Internship by their doctoral program.

The NMH-UST Internship Program is partially affiliated with the University of St. Thomas Graduate School of Professional Psychology. During Phase I of the Match, all internship slots are allocated to qualified candidates from the University of St. Thomas Psy.D. Program in Counseling Psychology. There is no guarantee that the two positions will be filled by UST students.  If selection proceeds to Phase II of the Match applicants meeting the minimum requirements outlined above may apply and be ranked.

The NMH-UST Internship Program participates in the National Matching Service. Intern applicants are strongly encouraged to use responses to the standardized APPI materials (i.e., cover letter, personal statement, diversity essay) to convey the strength of fit of the Internship Program with the applicant’s background, experience, and goals. To complete the application process, application materials must be submitted no later than November 15 at 11:59PM CST through the APPIC Portal Program Code: 242911.

An Intern Selection Committee will review internship applications. All applicants will be notified by November 21 as to whether or not they will be offered an interview.  Only qualified UST candidates will be eligible and ranked in Phase I.  There is no guarantee that all positions will be filled by UST students, and in such case, during Phase II of the Match we will accept and rank applications from external candidates. 

Applicants who have been selected for an interview will be notified on or before November 30. The in-person interview occurs over a full day on Friday, December 13, 2019. If the interviewee is unable to attend an in-person interview, interviews may be conducted by Skype or telephone.

Rank order lists, for both internship sites and applicants, are due to the National Matching Service by February 7, 2020. The NMH-UST Internship Program Code is 242911.

Please be aware that this internship site follows the guidelines established by the Association of Psychology and Postdoctoral Internship Centers (APPIC). We fully endorse the APPIC policy summarized in the following statement:

"This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC Policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant."

The Internship Program commits to non-discrimination and fair treatment of all Interns, supervisors, other training faculty, contributors, and other stakeholders. It avoids any actions that would restrict program access or completion on grounds that are irrelevant to success in graduate training or the profession.
