The Psychology Internship Training Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine was established in 1952 and has been continuously APA accredited since 1956. The internship program moved to its new academic home in the Department of Family Medicine in 2012 under the departmental leadership of Chairman Frank Verloin deGruy III, M.D., M.S.F.M.
The CU School of Medicine on the Anschutz Medical Campus is home to 85 psychologists who hold faculty appointments in the departments of Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Medicine, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry. The rich training opportunities in the psychology internship program are the result of interdisciplinary and multi-institutional collaborative efforts that include faculty members from the School of Public Health as well as other CU system institutions, including the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. A number of clinical volunteer faculty members also contribute to the service, teaching, and scholarly missions of the School of Medicine through their dedication to the psychology internship program. All psychologists with primary supervisory responsibilities are graduates of APA accredited internships. The Internship Program is administered under the direction of Co-Directors, Josette G. Harris, Ph.D. and Abbie O. Beacham, Ph.D.
