Southwest Consortium Doctoral Psychology Internship

The Southwest Consortium Doctoral Psychology Internship is a member of APPIC and is accredited by the American Psychological Association. The next APA site visit will occur in 2027. The Southwest Consortium is a consortium of New Mexico VA Health Care System, Indian Health Service-Albuquerque Service Unit, and University of New Mexico Hospital. 

Our training program follows a scientist-practitioner model and we ascribe to a generalist training philosophy.  We aim to provide interns with experiences to increase knowledge of areas of specialty interest while also ensuring training in areas that might represent gaps in their graduate training. We consider our training in cultural and individual diversity to be a particular strength of the program. Culture is conceptualized broadly and we emphasize an understanding of both self and others to effectively integrate issues related to culture and individual differences into professional activities.  

Doctoral students in APA-accredited clinical or counseling psychology programs who have completed at least 250 hours of practicum experience, have had a formal dissertation proposal accepted, and have the approval of their departmental Director of Clinical Training are eligible to apply. Seven of our eight internship slots are federally funded and must be US Citizens. Male intern candidates must be registered for the Selective Service or provide documentation indicating an exemption from registering. Strong preference is given to those candidates who have completed, or nearly completed their doctoral dissertation and who have demonstrated research productivity. We have found that students from Clinical Science or Scientist-Practitioner doctoral programs have been the best matches with our training philosophy and values. We also highly value experience with and/or demonstrated interest in cultural factors in psychology. We believe our internship is ideal for those who envision a career that combines clinical, teaching, and research activities within a culturally-informed framework. We of course abide by our parent institution’s non-discrimination policy.

Application deadline: Monday, November 1, 2021
