The Psychology Internship Program is grounded in the practitioner-scholar model, which emphasizes that through the training experience clinical practice is guided by scientific theory and research. Based on this model, the development of knowledge and skills related to evidence-based treatments are considered critical to competent and ethical professional practice. Interns are trained in evidence-based practices and learn how to incorporate these practices in their clinical work across all rotations. The practitioner-scholar model also acknowledges the complexity of real patients and limitations of the empirical base. Thus, science and research are constantly evolving and informed from the delivery of clinical care while respecting our patients as unique people, accounting for individual, cultural, and societal considerations.
