Welcome to the website of the Clinical Psychology Internship Program (CPIP) at the California Department of State Hospitals-Napa (DSH-Napa). Our training program has been continuously accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1959. As the second largest forensic hospital in the country, DSH-Napa offers a broad range of clinical psychology training opportunities. The Psychology Department consists of approximately 84 clinical psychologists - 20 percent of whom are former DSH-Napa interns committed to creating a supportive training environment for each new intern. DSH-Napa is located in the culturally and ethnically diverse San Francisco Bay Area. Approximately 60 percent of hospital staff and patients identify as racial/ethnic minorities, reflecting the diversity of the Bay Area-at-large.
