A Guiding Star to Navigate Autism, Mental Health and Special Needs at Every Stage of Life

Clinical Psychology Internship

Primary focus in autism, mental health and pediatric neuropsychology at Fraser

The Fraser Clinical Psychology Internship program emphasizes broad and general training in child and adolescent clinical psychology with unique specialized training opportunities in autism spectrum disorders, child and adolescent mental health and neuropsychology. Each of the three major rotations provides experiences that promote the development of intermediate to advanced knowledge, skills and competencies aligned with the program’s overarching goals and objectives. Our program is designed to prepare interns for advanced training or work in these areas of professional practice.

We are committed to developing an individualized training experience for each intern. We have three interns annually. Interns are involved in a variety of clinical experiences with diverse populations. They complete three four-month rotations: Early Childhood Evaluation Rotation (birth through five), Child and Adolescent Evaluation Rotation (six and older) and Neuropsychology Evaluation Rotation. They also conduct individual, group and family therapy throughout the year with clients from the mental health and autism programs. These clinical experiences emphasize comprehensive training in broad and generalized areas of psychology, but also allow flexibility to maximize personal growth and to provide for more in-depth experiences in areas that are of particular interest to the trainee. We emphasize a comprehensive approach to training across clinical work, didactics, case consultations and research. Interns are provided with one half-day of protected time each week for research under the direction of a staff mentor.

Due to COVID-19 and in order to provide fair and equitable access to all intern candidates, there will be no in-person interviews during this recruitment cycle. Thus far, our program has had no delays with start dates or end dates due to COVID-19 restrictions. All previous interns were able to graduate the program on time and met all requirements for training and supervision hours. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Klein regarding specific questions about our training program and processes during the pandemic.

The internship year begins on August 1, 2022, and ends July 31, 2023. Applicants will be invited to attend an interview through Zoom. During the interview process, prospective interns will speak with the training director, current interns, and faculty in separate interviews via Zoom.
