Davidson College sponsors an eight-week summer internship program for undergraduates at Broughton Hospital in Morganton, N.C., a state psychiatric facility serving western North Carolina. Students complete one course credit by taking Practicum in Psychology (PSY 290), which includes working in the hospital and weekly classroom meetings, times to be arranged once the class arrives in Morganton.
Participants work with hospital professionals as observers and assistants in patient treatment programs.
Service to the hospital is an important aspect of all placement options. Expected placement options include the Adult Admission Division, the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Division or the Specialty Services Division, which includes the adolescent, geropsychiatry, and medical units.
Visit the the Broughton Hospital web site for an overview of the hospital, its leadership, maps, and directions.
