Social Work and Counseling Internship
Looking for a unique training experience working with children, adolescents, and their families? Bradley Hospital offers internship opportunities to second year graduate students looking for an academic year internship.
Interns can experience many different levels of care including inpatient units, partial programs, residential, clinical school settings, specialty programs for children and adolescents with autism and developmental disabilities, as well as comorbid psychiatric and medically complex patients.
During your internship you will work with a multidisciplinary treatment team of social workers, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, and other disciplines appropriate to the specific population.
While interning at Bradley Hospital, you will have the opportunity to:
- Be a part of a cohort of interns from multiple graduate programs in the region.
- Engage in weekly didactic and discussion seminars.
- Learn about a multitude of topics to enhance your internship experience, including psychopharmacology, vicarious trauma, and differential diagnoses.
- Learn from a mentor, someone who has completed their internship through the hospital and gone on to be hired within the system. Mentors function as a supportive guide as you navigate the many layers of your graduate schooling and internship.
To apply for an internship, please send your cover letter, resume, two letters of recommendation, and a clinical writing sample to Wendy Cook, administrative assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions, please email Michele Gessman, LICSW, clinical director of social work and counseling at email@example.com.
