Partnerships With the Community

Social Ingenuity and Innovation

Partnering With Our Community

We believe Morrison Family College of Health can be an incubator for social change. We build partnerships within the University of St. Thomas and externally with members of our community to be at the forefront of innovation. Our programs are intended to reflect on the past and reimagine the future.

The Morrison Family College of Health is focused on helping students, faculty and alumni discover new and more effective ways of delivering and promoting health and well-being. We are dedicated to educating students regarding what the future of health could become to expand access and affordability for all people, families, and communities.

The world of health care is rapidly changing, with ongoing and sweeping changes in technology and the role that social and environmental conditions play in producing good health.

  • Conduct trainings, workshops, webinars, conferences, and seminars to expand the knowledge basis of trauma-informed education.
  • Create a pipeline of teachers, social workers, and professionals who are knowledgeable about trauma-informed and trauma-engaged education.
  • Increase the number of schools that adopt trauma-informed approaches.


North Memorial Health Doctoral Psychology Internship

The North Memorial Health-University of St. Thomas Joint Doctoral Psychology Internship Program is co-sponsored by North Memorial Health (NMH) and the University of St. Thomas Interprofessional Center for Counseling and Legal Services (IPC). The Internship Program provides a wide range of training experiences that allow for working with demographically diverse populations within multiple service locations in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. Moreover, interns can gain valuable experience of serving clients across the continuum of care, from acute hospital-based services to outpatient community mental health. Finally, Interns develop competencies in the area of Clinical Supervision, through providing direct supervision to masters-level trainees. See Internship Brochure for more information on clinical training opportunities and rotations.

Please note that due to the Internship Program’s partial affiliation with the University of St. Thomas, Phase I applications are only accepted from candidates enrolled in the University of St. Thomas Graduate School of Professional Psychology’s Psy.D. in Counseling Psychology program.
