Candidates with no previous clinical experience are required to participate in an introductory externship under the guidance of the IPTAR Clinical Center. There are two options: A placement at the “Friendly Visitors” program at the Hebrew Home for the Aged in Riverdale, or at a school that participates in the ICC’s On-Site School Program. Candidates are required to participate in either option, with supervision provided free of charge, for the full academic year.
Candidates with mental health clinical experience can immediately begin doing individual psychotherapy at a placement provided by the Program. All second year Respecialization students are required to participate in this psychotherapy placement. Again, supervision is provided free of charge. Second year Respecialization candidates who have begun full training analyses are eligible to apply to begin seeing patients in therapy at the IPTAR Clinical Center.
