Application Requirements

Application Information

Prior completion of all doctoral degree requirements in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA/CPA-accredited program is required. We give preference to candidates with demonstrated experience in primary care, family medicine, and behavioral medicine/health psychology. Successful candidates commonly have practicum and internship experiences in primary care settings. Family therapy training is also valued.  

Bilingual (English/Spanish) candidates are especially sought after. Candidates who show enthusiasm for working in a diverse workforce with a diverse patient population are also sought. Minority and candidates with disabilities are strongly urged to apply. 

We are an APPIC affiliated program and will follow their guidance about post-doctoral selection processes and timing. We adhere to the APPIC uniform notification date for post-doctoral selection. 

This is a two-year position. Advancement to year two is expected and encouraged. During the first-year fellows will be asked to sign a commitment letter confirming their acceptance of a second year of training. In rare instances, if advancement criteria are not met, a fellow may not be invited to continue training a second year; however, opportunity for remediation would be offered before this decision is finalized.

"The fellowship was the perfect capstone to my training and preparation to function as anindependent professional.  The fellowship leaders are the most impactful mentors with whom I had the opportunity to work over the course of the training, the residents are bright and enthusiastic, and the culture is energetic and warm.  I cannot imagine a better setting for a learner interested in a career as a leader in the integration of behavioral health into primary care."
