Success Key

This page is for individuals interested in learning more about 
Mann-Grandstaff VA Medical Center's
 Psychology Doctoral Internship program.


The Spokane VAMC Psychology Doctoral Internship program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association. The internship began training students in 2012 and attained a seven-year accreditation by the APA in 2015. We currently offer four internship spots. This internship emphasizes diversity and skills for serving in urban, rural, and highly rural settings as interns complete one year-long major rotation and 4 six-month minor rotations. The Spokane VA Medical Center is located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, offering a wide range of outdoor and cultural activities.

The Spokane VAMC Psychology Doctoral Internship program offers internship training to U.S. citizens who are pursuing a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA-accredited institution. Priority will go to students seeking generalist training with an emphasis on working with Veterans in rural and highly rural settings. To be considered, students must demonstrate completion of at least three years of graduate course work, a minimum of 500 direct contact hours in intervention, a minimum of 100 hours in assessment, and have independently written at least five integrative reports. Applicants must be certified as ready for internship by their Director of Clinical Training. Internship applications for the 2021-2022 training year must be submitted through the AAPI online no later than November 5, 2021.
