Psychology Training

The Division of Psychology offers multiple training opportunities. These include a structured pre-doctoral externship program with opportunities for psychological assessment and interventions, a structured post-doctoral program focusing on psychological and neuropsychological assessment, and a variety of informal opportunities involving research-oriented mentorships. Our relationships with psychologists in the departments allows for development of individualized training experiences for a select group of highly qualified post-doctoral applicants.
The division does not currently offer psychology pre-doctoral internship training, which is offered by the collaborative Jackson Memorial Hospital/ University of Miami Internship Program and the Internship Program at the Miami VA Medical Center.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami serves as a state-of-the-art medical school with a vast amount of clinical, research, and teaching experience for psychology fellows. This program seeks applicants with a strong background in behavioral medicine.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami offers two one-year post-doctoral fellowship positions in Clinical Health Psychology. One position emphasizes general practice in Behavioral Medicine and the other position emphasizes specialized practice in the area of HIV/AIDS. A strong emphasis is placed on fellows learning to become
effective members of multidisciplinary care teams.
