Cherokee Health Systems postdoctoral positions

Cherokee Health Systems invites interested and qualified applicants to apply for its APPIC-member Clinical and Health Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship training program. Applicants may apply to one of three areas of specialty. The Child and Adolescent Psychology track is a combined placement providing psychological services in an outpatient community health clinic and consulting with the child welfare system. Fellows conduct clinical case reviews, assessment, psychological testing, and care coordination with child welfare; provide education and consultation to trainees and other community providers; and evaluate mental and emotional disorders and administer programs of treatment in a traditional mental health care model. The Integrated Health Psychology track trains fellows within a primary care setting to address the behavioral and psychosocial aspects of health. Fellows serve as Behavioral Health Consultants (BHC) on the primary care team, and as such, provide assessment, intervention, and consultation to the primary care patient panel. The Developmental Psychology track is focused on assessment, intervention, and parent/teacher training in autism and related disabilities. Fellows serve on the Autism Treatment Team, carry a case load of new referrals, conduct and interpret comprehensive evaluations, and schedule ongoing intervention sessions with children and families. 

Completion of an APA accredited internship is required. For the Child and Adolescent and Integrated Health tracks, completion of an APA accredited PhD or PsyD Clinical/Counseling Psychology program is required; for the Developmental track, completion of an APA accredited PhD or PsyD in School or Development Psychology is required. Interested applicants should send a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to Sandra Greear with the specific track of interest identified in the subject of the email.  Three letters of recommendation should be sent directly from the reference and may be sent electronically or mailed to Sandra Greear, Cherokee Health Systems, 2018 Western Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37921.
