The final year of a doctoral psychology program is a required formal internship, which is one year of full-time work at a new institution, separate from your graduate program. During your internship year, you primarily focus on refining clinical skills in addition to a smaller degree of time spent in other academic experiences (e.g., seminars and research).
During internship, you can both fill in gaps in your general clinical psychology training (e.g., through “minor rotations”) while also delving further into clinical neuropsychology (e.g., through “major rotations”). Applying to APA-accredited internship programs is strongly recommended, and you can find internship programs with a neuropsychology emphasis here.
