Doctoral Psychology Internship Program

The mission of the Denver Health Doctoral Psychology Internship Program is to produce highly skilled doctoral-level clinicians with a strong professional identity as psychologists. We provide outstanding clinical training and supervision that fully prepares psychologists and consistently produces highly effective health service psychologists who are valued members of health care organizations. In addition to experience with a core curriculum that includes psychotherapy, psychological assessment, and acute psychopathology, psychology interns develop an early career area of expertise through participation on a multidisciplinary team of professionals. The program has been fully accredited since 1980 by the American Psychological Association.
