Clinical Psychology Internship

BC Children’s Hospital offers psychology internships and post-docs focusing on pediatric and health care psychology. The location of these internships is Vancouver, BC.

Psychologists in health care settings face exciting challenges and demands. They carry out a full range of sophisticated diagnostic activities and provide therapeutic intervention for a variety of psychological and emotional needs. They develop and implement management strategies for patients with a wide range of behavioural symptom-management problems. They are in a position to educate and collaborate with other professionals in the hospital and in the community. In other words, the health care psychologist is a trained professional working in a complex interdisciplinary health care setting.

Pre-Doctoral Residency Program

In the internship, you will receive training in psychological assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of children and youth with a wide range of acute and chronic medical and mental health conditions. This includes dealing with problems such as coping with pain and loss, adjusting to physical or mental disability and/or handicap, dealing with the stress of illness and injury, and understanding how medical conditions affect family dynamics.

The Residency/Internship program at British Columbia's Children's Hospital was reaccredited in 2012, for six years, with the next site visit expected to occur within the 2017/2018 academic year.
