Question externships in Psychiatry

Is it possible to get externships in private practice in psychiatry?

It seems to be more difficult to get hands on experience in Psych because of the privacy issues etc.

Can anyone please suggest any externship programs ? I know the VA ones..They are asking for a social security number...I dont have one unfortunately...
