Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care
in conjunction with
Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Department of Psychiatry
Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care (UBHC) - Piscataway, is a branch of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, as is the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Department of Psychiatry. UBHC is one of the largest behavioral health service delivery systems in the U.S. Our core facilities are located on the Rutgers University Busch Campus, in Piscataway New Jersey. The internship sites are located within this compound, or in separate buildings in the surrounding area. We are conveniently located approximately halfway between New York City and Philadelphia, offering easy access to both.
Our multi-disciplinary professional staff is comprised of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses and mental health specialists. Including support and administrative staff, there are over 1,000 employees. We offer a vast array of mental health and behavioral health services, making extensive clinical training possible, while also offering opportunities to develop skills in psychological assessment, consultation, training and supervision. Clinical services are provided across the life span, from infant to geriatric clients. The population of Central New Jersey is amongst the most ethnically, culturally and religiously diverse in the nation, and this is reflected in our population base. We provide traditional inpatient, partial hospital, outpatient and emergency services. We also provide behavioral health services to the prison population of New Jersey within University Correctional HealthCare (UCHC). In addition we have many less traditional, specialized programs such as our School-based programs, forensic programs, Early Intervention Support Services, Dementia Diagnostic Clinic and Employee Assistance Program.
Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care has a presence throughout a large part of New Jersey. Our other main hub in Newark also has a psychology internship program. Please note that the two internships are separate and autonomous programs.
