Alex Cogswell, PhD, training director.

Our psychology doctoral internship program, supported by the Patrick Lee Foundation, provides you with a one-year, full-time training opportunity that allows you to transition between doctoral study and your chosen career.

Our program offers the capstone experience in doctoral psychology. We are accredited, on contingency, through the American Psychological Association.

We give you in-depth clinical training with a developmental focus on serious mental illness. Our internship has three main goals:

  1. Prepare you for a career as a psychologist in a variety of academic, clinical and research settings in both the public and private sectors.
  2. Provide you with the foundation to become an expert in understanding and treating mental illnesses, including psychotic, affective and anxiety disorders.
  3. Provide you with advanced training in assessment, diagnosis and evaluation, as well as exposure to numerous intervention and treatment modalities.

A Beautiful, Vibrant Living Community

  • Buffalo is known for its snow, but dig a little deeper and you’ll discover that our region enjoys four distinct seasons.

    Our region is characterized by a neighborly way of life, an unpretentious nature and spirited loyalty among residents.

    Get past the snowy stereotype and you’ll be immediately captivated by Buffalo’s beauty, heritage, temperate climate and welcoming environment.
