Fellowships and Internships in Health Psychology

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Health Psychology

The Health Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program aspires to develop professional Psychologists who are competent, ethical, and prepared for independent practice in a variety of medical settings. There are two (2), one-year full-time Health Psychology Fellow positions. Training occurs via didactics as well as clinical exposure with direct supervision provided to facilitate the learning process with a focus on:

  • Assessment of individuals and families experiencing adjustment and coping issues related to physical and cognitive conditions using a biopsychosocial framework
  • The provision of short term, solution-focused interventions to promote optimal outcomes as well as evidence based interventions for longer term contact
  • Evaluation of cognitive disorders and medical populations
  • Encouragement of multidisciplinary collaboration and clinical consultation
  • Participation in advocacy/consumer protection and ethical and professional issues
