  • As an intern on Howard University Hospital Psychiatric Unit, interns are afforded the opportunity to gain exposure to an additional mental health care system through a close working relationship with psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, nursing staff, medical students, and patients.

  • Interns are provided direct supervision with respect to their participation in the psychiatric unit activities and services. In addition to the feedback they receive from the attending psychiatrist, the interns receive supervision on a weekly basis from licensed UCS psychologists.
