The psychology internship at Fulton State Hospital (FSH) is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) and is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). Questions related to our program’s accredited status should be directed to the Commission on Accreditation:
Our accreditation became effective on March 26, 2002. In July 2007, we had our first successful site visit and our accreditation was renewed for seven years. In March 2014, we had our second site visit, and were awarded continuing accreditation until 2021.
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.
