Thank you for your interest in Nebraska Mental Health Center’s Psychology Internship Program (NMHC-PIP). We created the internship in 2011 because we believe that NMHC-PIP is structured to provide interns an opportunity to hone outpatient therapy skills, continue to expand psychological testing and assessment skills, master group therapy processes and provide consultation within school and community settings.

The internship received full APA accreditation on July 21, 2019, and our interns are a vital part of the community outpatient program. Intern applicants should have knowledge in general practice skills and abilities in applied psychology. Additionally, intern applicants should have an interest in working with a wide variety of presenting problems and populations. You will find yourself challenged by the broad range of diagnoses you will treat and rewarded when you finish the program ready to begin your professional career.

We are passionate about training and helping interns make the transition from graduate students to full-fledged early-career professionals. We understand that internship application season can be a stressful time, so take a look at our website and brochure and feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We wish you the best of luck in your search for the program that best fits you and your training needs. If you believe NMHC-PIP is a great fit for your training needs, we welcome your application.
