Behavioral Health and Psychiatry

Supervision and mentoring

Doctoral interns are supervised by licensed psychologists – two primary, John B. Martin, Ph.D., and Sherri A. Ruggiero, Ph.D. and one secondary, Sumner J. Sydeman, Ph.D.  Drs. Martin and Ruggiero are employed full time with Behavioral Health Services at Flagstaff Medical Center; Dr. Martin is the program’s training director. Dr. Sydeman is on faculty at the Northern Arizona University Psychological Sciences Department and had been actively involved in the program since its inception.

Supervision will satisfy statutory regulations for the ratio of direct patient contact hours to the hours of direct supervision. Interns will receive a minimum of two hours of supervision per week. Other specific informal supervision will be available from other highly trained behavioral health and medical professionals.
