Psychology Training Faculty (PTF)

Although the internship director has overall responsibility for the internship program, input from the Psychology Training Faculty is obtained.  The PTF is chaired by the Director of Internship and all of the psychologists who have direct clinical contact with interns.  Because intern input is of crucial importance, an intern representative attends these meetings.  

The faculty meet monthly, usually on the fourth Tuesday of the month.  The interns select one representative to attend these meetings.  

A half-day retreat is held near the end of the internship year to allow the Psychology Training Faculty members and interns to (a) evaluate the current training year's activities and (b) plan for the next year's program.
