Psy.D. Student Receives VAMHCS Commendation for Excellence
Amy Henninger, a rising 5th year doctoral student in Loyola's Psy.D. program has received a Externship Commendation for Excellence Award from her externship site, the Veteran Affairs Maryland Psychology Externship Program. This site deeply values the commitment to outstanding work and finds it important to honor students who go above and beyond to exemplify excellence. Amy's performance was recognized not only for her efforts help to elevate this program, but also for honoring our veterans by providing exceptional care. The Externship Commendation for Excellence Award is given to psychology externs who exemplify excellence within the framework of the program’s scientist-practitioner training model. This requires adherence to the highest principles of professional ethics, conduct, and competence. Given the nature of the psychology extern role, this award particularly honors efforts to complete evidence-based clinical training and increase competency within a framework of deliberate growth and professional development. Amy will be heading to Madigan in Tacoma, WA to complete her doctoral clinical internship with an expected graduation date of May 2018.
