Several rotations will be available at these sites, including, PTSD Clinical Team, Neuropsychology, General Outpatient Behavioral Health, Community Living Centers, National Veteran's Suicide Prevention Hotline and Homeless Call Center, Research on Suicide Prevention with the Center of Excellence, Biopsychosocial Rehabilitation Program, Psychosocial Rehabilitation & Recovery Program, and Home-Based Primary Care.
The program will provide qualified pre-doctoral candidates in clinical and counseling psychology the opportunity to obtain a wide range of experiences with a variety of psychiatric, medical, and geriatric patients in both residential and outpatient settings. The intern will learn to function in VA settings and will gain experience in the activities conducted by VA psychologists.
