Psychology internship

Allina Health offers psychology interns a well-rounded and unique training opportunity. We provide high-quality training in clinical therapeutic intervention, assessment and interdisciplinary consultation.

Aim of program

Our aim is to provide the training necessary to fully prepare you with the knowledge and skills to have a successful career as a health service psychologist.

We do this by:

  • providing you with a diverse clinical experience and client population
  • following a model of training that provides supervised experience in areas of assessment, intervention and consultation
  • focusing on relevant research and evidenced-based practice that can be incorporated into your internship experience through direct clinical services, didactic experiences, consultation and/or supervision
  • valuing and focusing on your individual training needs and desires

As you become more familiar with your location and clients, gain experience and develop professionally, closer supervision will transition to mentorship and, eventually, relatively autonomous practice.

Allina Health's Psychology Internship values individual and cultural diversity. The training staff recognize that the services we provide our patients and the training you receive as an intern is vastly improved when a compassionate view of human differences is adopted by all. Given such, it is the aim of the training staff to offer continuous development of cultural competencies. It is one of our top priorities to be a mentor to you in this continuous learning process
