Welcome to the Psychology Internship Training Program at Montefiore Medical Center!
Only a 45 minute subway ride from Midtown Manhattan, the Psychology Internship Training Program is perfect for intern candidates who are interested in experiencing life in New York City while working in a bustling academic medical center!
In addition, our location in the Bronx, NY makes us an excellent match for interns who are interested in building their competence - and confidence - in the assessment and treatment in the full range of psychiatric disorders, while also addressing issues of diversity (the U.S. Census considers the Bronx to be the most diverse area in the country!), in a largely underprivileged and underserved patient population. This includes: (a) applying evidence-based treatments cross-culturally, (b) tailoring of evidence-based treatments for patients with comorbid medical conditions and/or multiple psychosocial and environmental stressors (either of which may impact the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of their mental health disorders), and (c) implementing evidence-based behavioral health treatments for chronic medical diseases (e.g., CBT for smoking cessation, weight management, hypertension, etc.).
As the University Hospital for Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center is nationally recognized for clinical excellence - breaking new ground in research, training the next generation of healthcare leaders, and delivering science-driven, patient-centered care – all of which has caused it to be ranked among the top hospitals nationally and regionally by U.S. News & World Report. In addition, the Psychology Internship Training program has been accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) since June 21, 1985 and was recently re-accredited until 2019 (for more information on the accreditation status of our program, please contact the APA at: American Psychological Association, Commission on Accreditation, 750 First Street, NE, Washington, DC 20002-4242; Phone: 202-336-5979; Web: http://www.apa.org/ed/accreditation).
