Supporting the Mental Health Professional Pipeline

ATLANTA – Skyland Trail supports the mental health professional pipeline by training and educating future mental health professionals.  The Skyland Trail internship program engages dozens of students each year, including graduate students completing master’s programs in social work or clinical counseling, recreational therapy students, and art and horticultural therapy trainees.

Three to four medical students from Emory University School of Medicine complete a rotation in psychiatry at Skyland Trail each year. A new partnership with Emory University School of Medicine in 2023 brings psychiatric fellows to Skyland Trail to train with Skyland Trail psychiatrists. Finally, partnerships with our Research and Outcomes Department provide on-the-job learning opportunities for Emory Rollins School of Public Health Earn and Learn (REAL) students and Oglethorpe University undergraduate psychology student interns.

The application deadline for Fall 2024 graduate clinical internships is March 10, 2024. Applicants must be enrolled in a school or university in the state of Georgia.
