VA Caribbean Healthcare System


Psychology Internship Program


The Psychology Service within the VA Caribbean Healthcare System offers a doctoral internship in professional psychology that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association (APA).  Our most recent reaccreditation site visit occurred during October 25-26, 2012.  We received full accreditation for the next 7 years until 2019. 

We also offer a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology with two possible areas of emphasis:  Women's Mental Health and Primary Care Mental Health Integration.   An application for accreditation of our Fellowship is expected to be sent to the APA in 2014.
