Psychology Post-Doctoral Fellowships  –  MILWAUKEE VA

The Psychology Training Program at the Milwaukee VA Medical Center is re-opening the application  process for postdoctoral positions in the following two areas of emphasis:    

  • Geropsychology
  • Mental Health/Primary Care

Both are full-time positions and carry an annual stipend of $43,697.   The starting date will be August 25, 2014. The fellowship program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association.

The fellowship operates within a scholar-practitioner model.  While the training primarily occurs within the context of the delivery of psychological services, training needs always take priority over service needs.   The objective of the fellowship program is to provide the environment and experience that will promote in-depth development in each area of concentration. The fellowship is organized around a core of clinical experiences, but allows some flexibility in pursuing individual goals.  While there may be opportunities to conduct research during the fellowship year, the major emphasis is on clinical practice.

A description of the fellowship program is available at   http://www.psychologytraining.va.gov/.

A candidate for a fellowship must be a U.S. citizen who, by the beginning of the fellowship year, will have completed an APA-approved doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology and an APA-approved pre-doctoral internship program.  This VA Center in its commitment to Equal Opportunity Employment and Affirmative Action encourages applications by minorities, women and handicapped persons.

We will begin reviewing new applications on March 10, 2014  and will continue accepting applications until the positions have been filled.

All application material is to be submitted electronically.   See the program brochure ( http://www.psychologytraining.va.gov/milwaukee/ ) for more detailed information on the application process.
