LIMA, Monica; BRITO, Manuela  and  FIRMINO, Alice. Psychology Internship in a Public Health Center of Salvador, Bahia. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.2, pp. 41-51. ISSN 2177-093X.

This article describes the specific supervised internship for Institute of Psychology, Federal University of Bahia (IPS/UFBA) students at the San Francisco Health Center in the city of Salvador, Bahia. The internship has been offered since 2009, with a 20-hour per week workload, 5 of those hours supervised. The diversity of health activities and programs included in the internship can be considered the strength of the education for psychologists. One of the State's main challenges is to deal with the contradictions and limits between the theoretic-methodological approaches of psychology and the regulatory approaches of public health. This experience has been evaluated positively by those involved and has aroused in social and professional commitment students with Unified Health System (SUS). We conclude that experiences like this can overcome the lack of technology and expand the repertoire of professional psychology students.

Keywords : supervised internship; training in psychology; basic health care.
