Postdoctral Fellowships at Hennepin County Medical Center

Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) is pleased to announce that we have two psychology fellowship positions (1 Adult Track and 1 Child Track) for the 2014/2015 training year (starting in mid-August).  Both are full-time.  The stipend is $39,000 and a competitive benefits package is also included.   Applicants must have received their doctoral training in clinical/counseling/school psychology at an APA-accredited program and completed an APA-accredited predoctoral internship. 
HCMC is located in downtown Minneapolis.  It is a comprehensive, academic medical center and public safety net hospital which serves a culturally, ethnically, and economically diverse population from urban, suburban, and rurual areas.  It also is a nationally recognized Level 1 Trauma Center which has been listed in US News & World Report’s listing of America’s Best Hospitals.  It operates a 465-bed acute care hospital, primary care, and specialty clinics at the downtown location, as well as primary care clinics in Minneapolis and suburban Hennepin County.  
The Adult Fellow primarily works in the Adult Psychiatry clinic doing intakes and therapy as well as some psychological evaluations (bariatric weight loss surgery and adult ADHD screening).  The Adult Fellow also spends three afternoons per week in the Adult Assessment clinic, responding to requests for “Trauma Psychology Consults” from the medical trauma services (orthopedics, neurosurgery, and burn) as well as requests for psychological assessment from the inpatient psychiatry service (usually MMPI-2 testing, but occasionally other personality or diagnostic testing are included, not neuropsychological assessments).  The Fellow may be asked to assist in other clinics/services, depending upon clinical needs of the organization.

The Child Fellow primarily works in the Child Adolescent Psychiatry Service (CAPS) clinic doing intakes and therapy as well as psychological evaluations (fairly comprehensive batteries).  The Child Fellow also responds to requests for psychological consultations to the inpatient medical services (primarily general/ICU pediatrics, psychiatric emergency room, or burn unit).  There may be the opportunity to spend some time in the Adult Psychiatry Clinic and the Fellow may also be asked to assist in other clinics/services, depending upon clinical needs of the organization.

Fellows have the opportunity to attend some of the didactic training offered to the interns.  Further information is available on our website:
