The Psychology Internship Training Program at Montefiore Medical Center is perfect for intern candidates who are interested in gaining experience working in a bustling academic medical center in what the U.S. Census considers to be one of the most diverse areas in the country!
Our locations throughout the Bronx make us an excellent match for psychology interns who are interested in building their competence and confidence in the assessment, treatment, and research of the full range of psychiatric disorders, while also addressing issues of culture, diversity, and social justice in a largely underprivileged and underserved patient population. This includes: (a) applying evidence-based treatments cross-culturally, (b) tailoring evidence-based treatments for patients with comorbid medical conditions and/or multiple psychosocial and environmental stressors (each of which may impact the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of their mental health disorders), (c) implementing evidence-based behavioral health treatments for chronic medical diseases (e.g., CBT for smoking cessation, weight management, hypertension, etc.), and (d) participating in (or designing) a research project and/or other scholarly activities with our clinical population that is of sufficient quality and rigor to have the potential to contribute to the scientific, psychological, or professional knowledge base via a professional publication or presentation at the local, regional, or national level.
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, Montefiore providing leading-edge LGBTQ+ care in our hospitals, community health centers and specialty clinics. We were the first health system to have a float in the NYC Pride March in 2016 and have been designated eight years in a row as a leader in LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign.
