Psychology Training

The Psychology Training Program offers internships to U.S. citizens who are pursuing a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA-accredited institution. Applicants must be certified as ready for internship by their Director of Training.

Internship Program Accreditation

The doctoral internship is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).  This program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation (CoA) of the American Psychological Association, effective November 5, 2013. At its July 13-16, 2022 meeting, the APA CoA voted to approve continued accreditation of the internship program at Richard L. Roudebush VAMC in Indianapolis, IN, with its next site visit scheduled 10 years from the date of the program’s last site visit. The next site visit will occur in 2032.
