Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
Our goal is to train psychologists from a scientist-practitioner model with advanced skills and knowledge in evidence-based practice within these specialty areas. This includes covering a common core of practice that includes ethics and professional standards, research strategies, teaching and supervision, cultural diversity and individual differences, assessment and intervention, professional development, and interprofessional consultation. In these fellowships, fellows will spend 80% of their time providing clinical services with the remaining 20% effort allocated to a clinically-relevant project which can include program development, program evaluation or an educational project related to the delivery of services.
Applicants for postdoctoral fellowships must have attended APA-accredited doctoral programs in Clinical or Counseling Psychology and must have completed APA-accredited internships. All requirements for the doctoral degree must be completed prior to the start of the fellowship year. Persons with a PhD in another area of psychology who meet the APA criteria for re-specialization training in Clinical or Counseling Psychology are also eligible. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. As an equal opportunity training program, the fellowship welcomes and strongly encourages applications from all qualified candidates, regardless of gender, racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, disability or other minority status.
