Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Psychology Internship Program

Children's National Hospital offers a comprehensive internship program in child clinical and pediatric psychology to doctoral students in psychology. The internship program provides extensive training in the many roles and functions psychologists play in health care today.

The intended result of this training is a broadly experienced child clinical/pediatric psychologist who can succeed in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, universities or the broader community and with a variety of patient populations. The program strives to develop psychologists committed to enhancing access to healthcare, valuing cultural differences, and advocating on behalf of the patients, families, and communities they serve. The internship is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association, initially earning accreditation in 1970.
