Our current residents have come from a variety of different schools and disciplines (Psy.D. and Ph.D.) and benefit from training in a hospital-based community mental health setting that emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of child and adolescent psychological disorders. For the eight positions we have available, we receive around 100 applications each year, making entrance into our program highly competitive.
Mount Sinai’s psychology doctoral therapy practicum residents choose from six different five- to ten-month rotations: pediatric weight management clinic, pediatric and adult endocrinology clinic, pediatric inpatient unit, Gads Hill Headstart Program, elementary school program and family therapy. Placement is ultimately determined by the director of training but relies on information about the extern’s goals and preferences. Our current residents are gaining both traditional and non-traditional training experiences in a pediatric psychology, community-oriented biopsychosocial training model, and through interdisciplinary collaboration are becoming more knowledgeable regarding the expertise of other mental health professionals.
