Clinical Psychology Training Programs

This web site is for potential interns and postdoctoral fellows applying to our clinical psychology training programs.

Welcome to our website! The Training Committee at the VA Portland Health Care System (VAPORHCS) appreciates your interest in our clinical psychology internship program and our postdoctoral psychology fellowship program. We invite you to browse through our pages and learn more about our training programs.

Our internship has been accredited by the American Psychological Association* since 1978 (next site visit due in 2017) and continues a strong commitment to fostering clinical skills and professional identity in interns. Internship applications for the 2017-2018 training year must be submitted through the AAPI online no later than November 1, 2016.

We currently offer four postdoctoral fellowships. Fellowship applications for the 2017-2018 training year must be postmarked by December 9, 2016.

The VAPORHCS psychology staff values collegial working relationships with interns and fellows as well as the opportunity to teach and provide supervision.
