Training Opportunities

The internship offers the opportunity to work with a variety of clinical populations across the continuum of care, including inpatient, partial hospital, and intensive outpatient programs. The primary modality is group treatment; however, all interns also work with individual clients. 

ROTATION ASSIGNMENTS: Interns experience two clinical rotations, each of which covers 5 days/week, and is a six-month commitment. The Princeton/Adults Outpatient (Mount Lucas) rotation, required for all interns, provides an experience with general psychiatric patients at the partial hospital and intensive outpatient levels of care. The other rotation takes place in either the Eating Disorders Program or the Women's Program. Applicants must apply to one or both of two tracks (Women's Program and Eating Disorders), using the separate program numbers provided through the National Matching System.
