Greenville HCC Psychology Internship Program

Greenville HCC Psychology Internship Program

The doctoral internship at the VA Greenville Health Care Center is a recently established program accepting its third class of interns for the training year of 2020-2021. An application for accreditation on contingency has been submitted to the American Psychological Association Council on Accreditation. Successful completion of this VA internship program (i.e., even prior to its APA-accreditation) will make graduates eligible for VA postdoctoral fellowships and for VA staff positions as psychologists.  

The overarching goal of the Greenville VA Health Care Center training program is to provide generalist training to prepare interns for clinical practice.  This goal is achieved through participation in a variety of clinical activities. Available clinical activities include rotations with:

  • Primary Care Mental Health Integration (primary rotation)
  • Neuropsychology (primary rotation)
  • General Mental Health (primary rotation)
  • East Carolina University Health Psychology (secondary rotation)
  • East Carolina University Consultation and Liaison Service (secondary rotation)
  • East Carolina University Psychological Assessment and
    Specialty Services Clinic (secondary rotation)
  • A strong emphasis is placed on competence in empirically supported interventions and assessment techniques, and empirical or scholarly basis for all clinical activities. We are also committed to ensuring a range of diversity among our training classes with respect to Veteran status, members of historically underrepresented groups, sexual orientation, and disability status.
