"Practical activity" according to the Training and Examination Ordinance
According to the Training and Examination Ordinance for Psychological Psychotherapists (PsychTh-APrV) of 18 December 1998, practical work "serves to acquire practical experience in the treatment of disorders with disease value within the meaning of § 1 para. 3 sentence 1 of the Psychotherapists Act as well as knowledge of other disorders for which psychotherapy is not indicated" "During the practical activity in the psychiatric clinical institution, the trainee is to be involved in the diagnosis and treatment of at least 30 patients over a longer period of time in each case. For at least four of these patients, the patient's family or other social partners must be involved in the treatment concept. In doing so, the training participant shall acquire knowledge and experience of the acute, abating and chronic symptomatology of various psychiatric disorders and document the patient treatments on a case-by-case basis, stating their scope and duration."
Since our clinic as an acute clinic depends on a high presence of the treating physicians and psychologists, 50%-activities are not possible.
An internship salary can be paid for the internship - under consideration of labor law requirements. Please ask for more details during the interview.
Certification and credit
Participation in courses can be certified and credited for theory hours not offered by the training institute (so-called "free peak"). Likewise, training cases can be taken over and outpatient treatments can be carried out under supervision via the university outpatient clinic. It should be noted that these hours cannot fall under the 1200 or 600 internship hours of the psychiatric or psychotherapeutic internship, but count towards the area of practical training.
