Psychology Training

TL_psychology_didactics_web.jpgThe University of Washington Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences offers Psychology Training through our Psychology Internship Program and through numerous post-doctoral fellowships.
The Psychology Internship Program has been accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1965 and is a member of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science, a coalition of empirically-oriented training programs. The internship program emphasizes the integration of ongoing research activities with clinical applications and practice to further the science of psychology. Our program has three areas of specialization—adult, child and adolescent, and behavioral medicine/neuropsychology, all of which offer outstanding evidence-based clinical training, a rich array of research opportunities, and attention to the psychology intern’s career interests.
The department offers postdoctoral research and clinical fellowship training in a number of specialization areas with many opportunities linked to faculty research projects. These opportunities include fellowships in addictions at the Center for the Study of Health and Risk Behaviors, in child and adolescent psychology at Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH) and in the SCH’s Autism Center, and in adult intervention at the University of Washington Medical Center or Harborview Medical Center. Postdoctoral fellowships in behavioral medicine/neuropsychology, pain management, injury prevention, and in health outcomes are also available via our strong partnerships with colleagues in the Departments of Rehabilitation Medicine, Pediatrics, and Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine. All of these opportunities are open to those who have completed our Psychology Internship Program.
We invite you to explore our training opportunities and welcome your interest in our programs!​
