Medmom Training Programs



MedMom is an interdisciplinary center that serves children and youth by addressing their developmental, socio-emotional, behavioral, and learning needs. We provide integrated services covering various professional disciplines including Developmental Pediatrics, Special Education, Speech and Language Pathology, Psychology, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy.

We are now accepting internship applications for the following tracks:

Psychotherapy- The Psychotherapy Track training provides an opportunity for aspiring clinical practitioners to immerse in various interventions and treatment settings that address mental health issues. It requires at least 16 hours per week of combined direct service, documentation/administrative work, supervision, and training. Counseling or psychotherapy coursework is mandatory. Trainees will be assigned to different programs depending on clinic needs and trainee interest (i.e. Low-Fee Clinic-Based Services, Group Interventions, School-Based Services, PGH Pediatric Oncology Mental Health Program, Executive Functioning Program). Didactic training will cover ethics of clinical practice, risk and crisis management, family systems approach, clinical interventions with young children, clinical interventions with teens, interdisciplinary practice, and termination/continuity of care.

Assessment- This training track is focused on developing knowledge and skills in conducting comprehensive evaluations for children and adolescents to address developmental, learning, and socio-emotional needs. Assessment Track training requires at least 16 hours per week, which includes conducting evaluation process, scoring and analysis, report-writing, feedback and plan development sessions, clinical supervision, and other training activities. Completion of graduate-level coursework in assessment is required (i.e. indivually administered cognitive & academic batteries, projective testing).

Interns need to be willing to complete the training cycle even if the hours are in excess of required school internship hours.

Tuition Fees: Fees are collected to help the clinic cover the costs of providing a comprehensive clinical training program with regular supervision. The fee is Php 5,0000.00 per cycle for local interns. Please inquire regarding fees for international students.
