INTERNSHIP EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
The Internship Executive Committee includes supervisors who represent each of the training sites, the Director and Assistant Directors of Training, the Director of the Section of Psychology and the Chief Intern. It is chaired by the Director of Training.
The purpose of the Internship Executive Committee is to provide administrative and organizational direction for the Psychology Internship Program. The Internship Executive Committee meets monthly to review the operations of the program and to develop and revise Internship Program policies and procedures as needed.
The Internship Executive Committee also regularly reviews the progress of each intern and is at times called upon to resolve areas of difficulty or conflict between interns and members of the faculty consistent with the program’s Grievance Procedure.
The Internship Executive Committee also has the authority to determine remediation plans for interns and to determine if a problem with an intern is serious enough to warrant lodging a complaint requesting disciplinary action or termination with the Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education
In matters relating to intern remediation, referral for disciplinary action/termination, and the resolution of intern complaints, conflicts, or disputes, decisions of the Internship Executive Committee will be reached by majority vote with each member having one vote. If the conflict involves the Director of Training, the Director of the Section of Psychology or any other member of the Internship Executive Committee, he/she will not participate as a voting member in decisions related to that dispute.
The Chief Psychology Intern will not be included in deliberations related to the remediation, disciplinary referrals, or evaluation of a specific intern. In all other matters, the Chief Psychology Intern will function as a voting member of the Internship Executive Committee.
The actions and decisions of the Internship Executive Committee are subject to the approval of the Director of the Section of Psychology and the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry.
The proceedings of the Internship Executive Committee meeting will be recorded in regular minutes which will be distributed to the members of the Internship Executive Committee and are available to other members of the training faculty.
