Pathways to Military Internships: The Winter Institute

New Virtual Training
Course Dates: 10-12 January 2022

The Center for Deployment Psychology’s Pathways to Military Internships: The Winter Institute is a three-day course held online: established to raise doctoral students’ awareness of what it would be like to serve as psychologist in the Armed Forces and to increase their competitiveness for a military internship. This is our first time offering The Winter Institute, which extends a unique training opportunity to more doctoral students by providing the curriculum online. The application period opens August 2021. 

The course is:

  • Hosted online through Zoom
  • Intended for 1st 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year doctoral students in clinical or counseling psychology
  • Aimed at students seriously exploring the idea of applying to a military internship at one of the ten training programs located throughout the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force
  • An intensive program that will strengthen trainees’ backgrounds in military behavioral health as they gain first-hand knowledge of military culture and the work of military psychologists who treat active duty service members

Curriculum:

Through online didactics, panels, and group discussions led by CDP faculty and experts in the field, participants learn about:

  • Types of clinical and assessment opportunities for military psychologists
  • The warrior ethos, deployment cycle stress, military family challenges and resilience
  • Ethical dilemmas faced by providers working with military patients. Students have the opportunity to explore situations that may expose military psychologists to unique ethical challenges
