Meet Our Team

Trainees participate in supervised experiences in diagnostic, therapeutic, and clinical research settings. The development of knowledge is also facilitated through supervision; supervisors serving as professional role models. The intern's primary supervisor is responsible for monitoring progress and insuring that the intern's training needs are being met. Interns will be required to present case conceptualization and supporting empirical data for the interventions selected as treatments.
Interns receive a minimum of two hours of individual face-to-face supervision each week. In addition to individual supervision provided for each of the core training components, Pediatric Health and Neuropsychology Track interns are also provided one hour of individual specialty training track/rotational supervision per week. Interns also receive individual and group supervision on a weekly basis as part of the yearlong assessment/intervention seminars they attend, a minimum of four hours of supervision provided each week.
