APA-Accredited Doctoral Psychology Internship Program
The purpose of the psychology internship program is the preparation of psychologists for practice in public mental health settings and diverse communities with underserved populations and serious mental health conditions. Interns gain a broad range of generalist skills for practice as a health service psychologist, while also exploring their emerging professional identities through alliance with a specific interdisciplinary community treatment team throughout the internship year.
The standard training program is a full-time (40-44 hours per week) internship, to be completed over 12 months. Interns accrue 2000 pre-doctoral training hours. The program begins each year on the first Wednesday after the Labor Day holiday and concludes on August 31.
Masters Level Internships
Although Marin County BHRS does not currently have a formal MSW Internship training program, BHRS is welcoming of MSW Interns and can facilitate field placements on a case-by-case basis, based on areas of interest, availability of supervisors, and program capacity.
At BHRS, our goal is to ensure a diverse workforce focused on equity to meet the needs of our clients and community.
