Integrated Care Internship Program

Integrated Care Internship Program

The George Fox Integrated Care internship is a paid, APA-accredited training program within a primary care/medical setting.

You’ll gain training and experience within the complex environment of primary care medicine, serving as an integral part of a medical team of interprofessionals who collaborate on patient care.

Your internship will mirror real-world scenarios, and you’ll develop skills in assessing and treating a wide range of presenting problems, from mood disorders through the psychosocial variable influencing complex medical conditions. Our interns provide services to a broad range of patients from diverse backgrounds.

Training, Support and Mentorship for Interns

This immersive internship offers weekly didactic trainings in a primary care behavioral health setting to provide students with knowledge, competency and a broad professional focus.

Every week interns will receive two hours of individual supervision by the onsite psychologist who has primary responsibility for patient care in the respective clinics. Additionally, interns will have two hours of group supervision and three hours of didactic training.

Interns will focus their training on the following areas:

  • Research
  • Ethical and legal standards
  • Individual and cultural diversity
  • Professional values, attitudes, and behaviors
  • Communications and interpersonal skills
  • Assessment
  • Intervention
  • Supervision (see below)
  • Consultation and interprofessional/interdisciplinary skills

We are pleased to announce that our program is APA-accredited

We have an upcoming site visit and a review in Fall 2021.

Application for Internship

Our internship participates in the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) Match and is considered “partially affiliated” with George Fox University. This means that while it exists as a training resource for George Fox University Graduate School of Clinical Psychology students, each year we take students from other programs as well. We value the training and perspectives students from other programs bring, and the shared learning that results.

This internship is best suited for applicants interested in Primary Care Behavioral Health, and we encourage students who are bilingual and/or come from diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply. We strive to create a welcoming, supportive learning environment for all interns, including diverse and underrepresented communities.
