COVID-19 Impact on Training

The impact of the COVID-19 public health crisis is significant, multi-pronged, and ongoing. COVID-19 has disrupted doctoral and internship training, creating numerous personal and professional challenges for us all.  The psychology training program at Hennepin Healthcare is committed to providing transparent information about our program and training opportunities. As the pandemic continues, we are not able to predict how rotations and training opportunities will evolve during the 2021-2022 training year. It is likely that there will be a hybrid of delivering clinical services in-person and via telehealth, and continued utilization of technological platforms for educational opportunities. We do not anticipate any major changes to the clinical and training opportunities described in our training materials. We will continue to serve the diverse population of the Twin Cities.

Despite shifting to providing clinical services and training remotely since the beginning of the pandemic, our commitment to providing excellent clinical care and meaningful training experiences remains. The safety of our trainees, staff, and patients is a priority.  We have taken numerous safety measures at our hospital and satellite clinics to ensure that every patient that comes into our system is screened for COVID-19 symptoms. Our Infection and Prevention team is working around the clock to implement strategies to keep everyone safe.

We will update our training materials as we know more about what the 2021-2022 training year will look like. For now, we can confirm that fellowship interviews will be taking place virtually. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.
