Internship Admissions, Support, and Initial Placement Data (updated 18 Sept 19)

The Clinical Psychology residency program at Malcolm Grow Medical Clinics and Surgery Center offer a number of exciting training opportunities.  Our program offers a wide range of elective rotations including advanced biofeedback, advanced neuropsychology, advanced primary care consultation, and inpatient mental health. We offer supervision of practicum students from the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences PhD program in clinical psychology, while being viewed as "junior colleagues" with an emphasis on training and mentoring. This allows interns to transition from graduate students into professional psychologists who become our peers. Additionally, all interns will serve as consultants to the Aeromedical Staging Facility.  We have a scientific focus with programs focused on empirical and critical thought as well as case conceptualization skills, covering a wide range of empirically-based practices (EBPs) including assessment, treatment, supervision, and community-based psychology. Throughout the program, residents are supported in their autonomy and professional development through elective rotations, leadership opportunities, supervision, and development of officership skills. None of this would be possible without our strong interdisciplinary teamwork, consultation, and access to mental health and medical expertise afforded by our location in the Washington DC National Capital Region.  This offers a multitude of military and civilian agencies related to health care and research, enveloped in a joint service environment necessary in a time of multi-service operations. Last, but certainly not least, our unique position geographically affords our residents notable opportunities including tours of the Pentagon, White House, U.S. Capitol, and other cultural, political, academic, and international attractions.  The cultural diversity and richness of this area is an ideal backdrop to the time our residents spend developing their expertise while serving our country.  Please click on the picture above to learn more about our program through our most recent program brochure!
