Clinical Psychology Training

Group Therapy with Young AdultsWe offer two clinical psychology training programs: a doctoral internship (one year) and post-doctoral training.

Doctoral Internship Program

Founded in 1948, our Clinical Psychology Doctoral Internship enjoys a great reputation for rigor and outstanding supervision. The program offers an adult psychology track and a child psychology track. Interns also select a specialized concentration within their track. Interns learn through a wide range of clinical experiences and didactic seminars, with opportunities to participate in ongoing research within their specific rotations.

Post-Doctoral Training Program

Our Clinical Psychology Post-Doctoral Training program is designed to support the professional development of recent PhD graduates as they transition from the role of student to that of a clinical psychologist. Post-docs benefit from exposure to a variety of clinical settings and specialty clinics, involvement in cutting-edge research and mentorship by faculty who are invested in their professional development.

Some faculty members in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences have joint appointments in the Duke Clinical Psychology Program. Prospective graduate students and undergraduate students interested in research assistance, practica or independent study opportunities are encouraged to contact Dr. Zach Rosenthal ( or Dr. Nicole Heilbron ( for more information.
