Doctoral Internship


The major goal of the doctoral internship training program at Lakeview Specialty Hospital and Rehab is the development of psychologists who have the knowledge, skills, and self-awareness necessary to deliver psychological services to diverse populations, and who practice competently and independently in a professional, empathetic, and responsible manner.  We provide opportunities for doctoral interns to examine a broad range of psychological problems, to develop depth of skill in particular areas of specialization, and to gain practical experiences as preparation for successful entry into post-doctoral or entry-level professional positions.
