Syracuse VA Medical Center


Psychology Internship Program


This web site is for individuals interested in applying for a Psychology Predoctoral Internship with the Syracuse VA Medical Center. Veterans can find VA health care information at the VISN 2 website.

 The Syracuse VA Medical Center provides exceptional training to Psychology Interns who are interested in becoming well-rounded professional psychologists as well as developing specialty skills in areas such as PTSD and Health Psychology. Interns at the Syracuse VA routinely describe their internship training year as well-balanced and individually tailored to their professional goals. Training faculty are perceived as supportive, flexible, and person-focused.

This is an APA-accredited Internship. Qualified doctoral candidates enrolled in APA-accredited programs in clinical psychology or counseling psychology are eligible to apply.

Training takes place at the Behavioral Health Outpatient Center as well as the Syracuse VA Medical Center, a 106-bed medical and surgical facility and Deans Committee hospital. Interns benefit from an atmosphere of professional growth and inquiry, as the Syracuse VA has active affiliations with SUNY Upstate Medical Center and other institutions, training hundreds of residents, interns, fellows, and students of various disciplines each year.
