The LGBT Psychology Internship Track, established in 2013, is sponsored jointly by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, the IMPACT LGBT Health and Development Program in the Department of Medical Social Sciences, the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine, and the Center on Halsted.
This APA-approved, one-year internship, offered to three trainees annually, is designed to prepare clinical psychologists for careers addressing the behavioral health needs of the underserved populations of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals. It is funded by a grant from Health Resources and Services Administration.
The program seeks clinical psychology trainees who have interests in clinical practice, public health, and clinical research with the LGBT community. For more information and application instructions, please see the story on the IMPACT site.
