Provide description of Externship:


EXTERNSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM MANHATTAN PSYCHIATRIC CENTER Manhattan Psychiatric Center, an adult, inpatient NY State facility, is pleased to offer a formal Externship Training program for pre-Intern level graduate students. The Externship requires a minimum time commitment of 16 hours/week for a full academic year, the specific days of which can be flexibly determined. Each Extern, in conjunction with his/her assigned primary placement supervisor, works out an individual work schedule. Extern responsibilities may include some or all of the following: 1- Individual therapy 2- Diagnostic testing and report writing 3- Group therapy co-leadership, with a fellow Extern, an Intern or with senior staff 4- Participation in inpatient ward responsibilities (Community meetings, staff rounds, Treatment Team meetings, etc.) 5- Attendance at facility-wide Case Conferences and Grand Rounds, and forensic seminars at Kirby Forensic Psychiatric Center 6- Training and experience in running Cognitive Remediation groups Externs are provided with a minimum of three hours per week of individual supervision. They meet with their placement supervisor for at least one hour/week, at which time they are supervised on the overall experience at MPC. They also receive weekly supervision for an hour/week from a second supervisor, on their individual treatment cases, and one hour weekly on their diagnostic testing, as well. Additional supervision is provided for any group work for which the intern is involved. Written evaluations will be provided to the extern’s graduate school at both the mid-year and end-year points. Of course, on-going informal feedback will be offered throughout. Each Extern is expected to see at least two patients for individual therapy and complete at least three complete assessment batteries over the course of the training year. Patients for both therapy and testing are drawn from all wards in the facility, allowing the extern to be exposed to varied types and manifestations of severe psychopathology.
All four externs must agree to be at the hospital on one shared day, but which day that is is flexible.
