Ann Arbor – VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System

Predoctoral Psychology Internship Program

The predoctoral internship at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System (VAAAHS) is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association. The next site visit is scheduled to occur during 2017. The Internship has been in continuous operation as an APA Accredited program since 1983.

The VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System offers clinical psychology internships on a competitive basis to U.S. citizens who are pursuing a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from APA-accredited institutions only. The orientation of the program best conforms to a scientist-practitioner or practitioner-scholar model. To be considered, students must demonstrate completion of at least three years of graduate course work and a combined minimum of 450 hours of formal Practicum Training in assessment and intervention. Other requirements conform to the criteria promulgated by The Council of University Directors of Clinical Psychology (CUDCP). Applicants must be certified as ready for internship by their Director of Training. The internship operates utilizing many resources from the University of Michigan Medical School; the VAAAHS’s academic partner.

The internship is structured on a major/minor rotation system with rotations lasting six months and ensuring intensive, in depth experiences. Major rotations include mental health opportunities (Mental Health Clinic, Female Veterans Mental Health, Substance Use Disorders (including Intensive Outpatient Treatment), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Clinical Team, and Serious Mental Illness Rehabilitation and Recovery). Behavioral Health rotations include Neuropsychology, Health Psychology, Primary Care Integration, and Geropsychology (Community Living Center). Minor rotations include many intervention and assessment programs as well as a research option.
