Student Rotation - Behavioral Health

Experience healthcare for all ages of urban underserved, as you work alongside a psychologist, counselor, or social worker, in the context of distinctively Christian service. Learn what it looks like to point to Jesus as both the source of ability and the true healer, by incorporating spiritual practices into healthcare.

Practicum/Internship includes opportunities to participate in evidence-based clinical psychology and primary care mental health interventions. Applications are required at least 60 days prior to the intended start date for all behavioral health rotations, including shadowing. Due to a large number of applications for only a limited number of slots, we regret that we are unable to accommodate every student who applies.

NOTE: Post-doctoral fellows--please contact us directly to discuss specific opportunities/accommodations.
