Our accreditation became effective on March 26, 2002. In July 2007, we had a successful site visit and our accreditation was renewed for seven years. Our next site visit is scheduled for 2014.
Our internship program is based on a scientist-practitioner model that emphasizes application of relevant assessment technologies and empirically-supported clinical interventions for individuals with severe mental illness and emotional disorders. We attempt to create an atmosphere for interns that will enhance personal and professional growth through a series of clinical rotations, didactic offerings, and opportunities for participation in special projects. It is our hope that interns will enjoy this experience while they expand their knowledge and skill base.
