The experiential-learning environment focuses on Intake Assessment and provision of brief treatment to patients in a community clinical setting. The placement is primarily clinical but is balanced with operational aspects of providing care. Prerequisites include DSM class(es), ability and willingness to learn and use the KBH electronic medical record system and an aptitude for working as a member of a team. Interns can expect an hour of weekly supervision, an hour of weekly group supervision and will be offered an hour of operational staff meeting time every other week.
