Pearl Health Clinic

1 Full Time Funded Position with Benefits

General Information

Pearl Health Clinic (PHC) is a large outpatient community mental health clinic serving all ages and presenting problems. Services provided include clinical interviews, outpatient psychotherapy, medication management, neuropsychological and psychological testing. There are over 20 licensed behavioral health providers practicing at Pearl Health Clinic.

The Internship Experience

Internships at Pearl Health Clinic will provide the opportunity for practical experience in clinical interviewing, outpatient psychotherapy (individual, family, and group), neuropsychological and psychological testing with individuals 3 years of age and older. Presenting problems will vary, with ADHD, depression, anxiety, bipolar, and PTSD representing some of the more common diagnoses. While the majority of the rotation would be focused on developing competency as a generalist, due to the diversity of clinician interests and the population served, interns will have the opportunity to focus in specific services or presenting problem areas. The internship at PHC will also afford interns the opportunity to work with a wide range of behavioral health professionals (e.g., counselors, MDs, case managers) and collaborate with other agencies in the Ammon/Idaho Falls community.
