Postdoctoral Fellowships - University of Rochester Medical Center

APA Accredited Psychology Training Program. 1-2 year fellowships, start dates of July 1st or September 1st

Child and Adolescent Psychology: Two Clinical-Scholar Postdoctoral Fellowships slots are available for those with outstanding clinical and research skills. Successful candidates will provide supervised clinical care within outpatient behavioral health and pediatric settings and participate in research as a member of the Laboratory for Innovation in Child Mental Health Care Delivery.  Additional responsibilities include participation in didactics, clinical supervision of junior trainees and staff, and undergraduate research assistants. Clinical care will be primarily provided within: (1) Strong Behavioral Health: Child and Adolescent Outpatient Services; a community-based mental health setting serving a diverse population of children from birth to 18; and (2) the Golisano Hospital for Children’s Pediatric Behavioral Health Services; a large 10,000+ patient primary care practice focusing on the health needs of underserved populations in the Rochester community. We are particularly interested in fellows with clinical and research interests and experiences that have focused on one or more of the following areas: integrated behavioral health primary care, early identification and screening, underserved populations, work force education in evidence-based approaches, and effectiveness studies.

Primary Care Family Psychology (PCF): Three fellowship slots are available featuring intensive clinical training in integrated care, primary care behavioral health, and medical family therapy. Positions offer opportunities for collaborative care with physicians and other health professionals, inter-professional education, family therapy training, teaching, and scholarship in urban primary care settings. Concentrations are available in Pediatrics (2 slots) and Women’s Health (1 slot).

PCF: Pediatrics: Two fellowship slots are available in a Pediatric concentration.  The primary placement for the pediatric fellow is in an urban pediatric clinic. The fellow provides therapy to children and their families, collaborates and consults with medical professionals as part of an interdisciplinary team, and provides consultation and teaching to pediatric residents. One year the fellow works full-time in the pediatric clinic while the other year the fellow spends most of his/her time in the pediatric clinic along with about a quarter time in an outpatient family therapy clinic in the academic medical center seeing children and their families, many of whom have comorbid medical problems.

PCF: Women’s Health: One fellowship slot is available in Women's Health concentration.
The women’s health fellow specializes in providing consultation, assessment, and treatment to women's health patients and their families. Close collaboration with medical providers is an essential component of the clinical care. The fellow provides individual, couples, and family therapy in a general obstetrics and gynecology clinic targeting underserved patients, and psychoeducational groups and brief consultation and counseling for women and couples attending a specialty care Fertility Clinic.
