Loma Linda University Behavioral Health Institute


The Loma Linda University School of Medicine (LLUSM), Department of Psychiatry offers a generalist predoctoral internship program in clinical psychology. Our goal is to provide high quality education in professional psychology by immersing interns in broad experiential training in order to foster the development of well-rounded, competent, entry-level clinical psychologists who can function effectively in a variety of settings that provide comprehensive psychological services, including medical centers, community agencies and outpatient clinics in the public or private sector. The successful intern will be able to integrate a bio-psycho-social-spiritual framework as he or she extends basic assessment and intervention techniques to meet the needs of diverse settings and problems, to appreciate and utilize cultural diversity, and to develop interpersonal and professional collaboration. Former interns hold positions in public, private, and academic settings across the country.
