Eligible candidates must have completed a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from a university-based program (PhD or PsyD) accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) or the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA). Applicants must also have finished a one-year pre-doctoral internship that is APA-accredited or its substantial equivalent. Dissertations must be complete by the time the fellowship begins.
In order to be considered for the program, applicants must provide the following along with their application:
- Curriculum vitae
- Letter of intent (one to two pages) outlining the specific training track (i.e., end of life care, grief and bereavement or health psychology) for which one is applying and why
- Three letters of recommendation (one letter should be from the internship director of clinical training/supervisor, one letter from the applicant's graduate program and another letter from a professional familiar with the applicant's academic and clinical training)
- A statement from the applicant's graduate school director of clinical training indicating the applicant's status in the program and projected completion of the requirements for the doctorate prior to the fellowship year (waived for those who have already earned a doctorate)
- Official transcript from graduate program
- Copies of two clinical reports (de-identified), one assessment/evaluation report and one psychotherapy intervention note
Review of applications will commence immediately after Jan. 4, 2019. Typically, promising applicants are interviewed first by telephone followed by a required on-site interview to meet the faculty and view our facilities.
At this time, our program has elected not to follow the constraints of the Uniform Notification Date (UND) in extending offers to competitive applicants. Our timeline operates independently of the UND because our organization views the post-doctoral position as a possible portal to eventual employment; therefore, we approach the hiring process more like a job interview rather than a training program lottery. Our intention is to make a "first round" of offers prior to the UND so candidates applying to programs using the UND timeline know where they stand with us. If our positions are not filled after the UND, we will likely re-open the application process for a finite period of time in order to find qualified applicants.
