The Duke internship has been known for providing quality DBT training, but a critical mass of ACT-trained faculty are increasingly available to provide experience using ACT with eating and anxiety disorders, among others. It is expected that over the next several years, opportunities for ACT-specific training at DUMC will grow as a result of recently awarded grant-funding to develop ACT for adolescent anorexia nervosa (Duke PI: Rhonda Merwin; Towson PI: Alix Timko). The Durham VA (adjacent to the med center campus) is also ACT-friendly and currently has an ongoing ACT consultation and study group.

The training model is scientist-practitioner. Two tracks are offered: Adult and Child, each with specific areas of concentration. Adult track consists of Adult CBT and Adult Health. Child track consists of Clinical Child & Pediatrics. These do not overlap so applicants must apply to one only: CBT, Health, Child, or Peds.
