Supervision

Fellows receive a minimum of four hours of supervision each week, including a minimum of two hours of individual supervision. Supervision is primarily conducted by attending psychologists in the clinic or unit in which the fellow is seeing patients.

Fellowship Duration

The Clinical Psychology Fellowship is a one year position. It starts on September 1st of each year and ends on August 31st of the following year.

When available based on research funding, two-year clinical research fellowship positions are offered in both Adult and Child Psychology. At least 50% of time in the fellowship is dedicated to clinical service provision and training, with the remaining time (<50%) supported by research funding. These positions are associated with specific clinical research initiatives and identified on our website when they are available. They are part of the APA approved clinical psychology fellowship program, and typically also start on September 1st.
