Practicum Extern



Roseville is firmly rooted in the Northern Sacramento Valley and was named for the wild roses that grow in the area.  Roseville has experienced significant growth and development in the last few years and is consistently listed as one of the best places to live, due in large part to its high employment rate, access to health care, and growing diversity.

Given Roseville’s proximity to Sacramento, Roseville has the benefit and feel of a large diverse city, while still offering the best of a suburban city, including world renowned dining, arts, and retail.  Roseville is an easy day trip to the coast, San Francisco, Napa, Lake Tahoe or Sonoma county. Outdoor activities are popular, especially from April to November, when the weather is warm and dry. The winter affords skiing opportunities in the Sierra. Cost of living is moderate for California communities and much more affordable than the Bay Area.

We serve more than 665,000 KP members in Roseville and Sacramento Areas, combined more than 875,000 in the greater Sacramento area. Our clinic serves a range of patients with a variety of clinical presentations.

Program Highlights

The North Valley Way focuses on (1) providing value to our patients; (2) engaging all physicians and staff in working toward our shared purpose; and (3) encouraging problem solving by physicians and staff who know and do the work. The focus on value to the patient includes removing redundant steps and variation, so we can provide the “Best Care, Every Patient Every Time.”

This is our “True North,” and we share this mission and vision as a department with our North Valley Medical Center. We also share the organization’s mission statement: “to be the best place to work and the best place to receive care.” As a training team we are proud to have this be our guide in all we do.

  • The Roseville training program is part of the North Valley Service Area. We are the largest service area in Northern CA – caring for over six-hundred-thousand patients last year, with approximately 10% receiving mental health services. As a result, we serve a very diverse group of patients, which greatly enhances clinical training opportunities.

Qualities we seek in our trainees is a desire to learn from some of the best psychologists in the area, a flexible style that allows one to pivot and be part of a team in a large department, the understanding that this training experience is a bridge to your next training step of predoctoral internship, and the ability to embrace work-life balance.
