Derner Internship Consortium

Select students have preferred access to an accredited internship.

Adelphi’s Gordon F. Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies s is the only clinical psychology program in the New York-Northern New Jersey metropolitan area to be awarded accreditation from the American Psychological Association (APA) for its own affiliated internship program.

The Derner Internship Consortium assures preferred access to an accredited internship for up to six of its students each year. The selected students will pursue internship training at the following six sites:

Derner collaborates with each of the sites to ensure that interns have the opportunity to provide direct care to a diverse population of patients, that they receive the close supervision needed to hone their clinical skills and that they participate in didactic training to increase their knowledge base.

Jonathan Jackson, Ph.D., the longtime director of the Center for Psychological Services and field training, established the Derner Internship Consortium and now serves as its director.
