Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple offers a 12-month clinical health psychology fellowship with two tracks: end-of-life care, grief and bereavement and clinical health psychology.
Our program, which is a member of APPIC, provides a broad array of experiences rather than specialized training only in one or two areas. Our fellows work with inpatients and outpatients with acute and chronic needs across a variety of medical services. Patients range from mature adolescents to elderly adults.
Fellows provide patient assessment, intervention and consultation to a variety of multidisciplinary medical teams, such as the neurology headache clinic, the pain center, weight reduction surgery team, the kidney transplant team and the heart transplant team, as well as the palliative care team and hospice. Fellows also have the opportunity to engage in program development, supervision and/or research during their training year. In addition to applied experiences, applicants will also participate in a number of didactic experiences relevant to their work in health psychology.
We accept two fellows per year.
