The philosophy and values of this program are centered in normative healthcare ethical values of beneficence, non-maleficence, and social contract in a context of public service. Its central goal and mission is to contribute to the development of competent clinical psychologists. To serve this overall goal, the training program welcomes applications from those whose graduate clinical/counseling psychology preparation in course work and introductory clinical experiences in practica are complete. The program selects Intern candidates whose preparation, supervisor recommendations, and perceived synergy with our program are deemed the best. By this process we identify Interns who have a readiness to learn - under supervision - how a psychologist actually practices in the fundamental tasks associated with the clinical profession. Thus, the program is designed around objectives to provide experiences in assessment, treatment, consultation, and scholarly support of practice that will enable interns to move to the level of post graduation practice and/or study. The program does not seek to train interns to pursue a specific career path, although its character and methods have produced a preponderance of graduates whose career trajectories could be characterized as scientist-practitioner or practitioner scholar. As a VA Center with a strong academic affiliation, these outcomes are congruent with our mission.
