Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions at Hennepin County Medical Center (Adult, Child, and Primary Care/Health Psychology)

Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) is pleased to announce that we have three psychology fellowship positions (1 Adult Track, 1 Child Track, and 1 Primary Care/Health Psychology Track) for the 2015/2016 training year (starting in mid-August). All 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 doctoral internship.
HCMC’s main campus is located in downtown Minneapolis, MN with outlying primary care clinics throughout urban and suburban Hennepin County. HCMC is a comprehensive, academic medical center and public safety net hospital which serves a culturally, ethnically, and economically diverse population from urban, suburban, and rural areas. It also is a nationally recognized Level 1 Trauma Center that operates a 465-bed acute care hospital with primary care and specialty clinics at the downtown location.
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 two 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). 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). The Fellow may also be asked to assist in other clinics/services, depending upon clinical needs of the organization.
The Primary Care/Health Psychology Fellow works in primary care clinics in the hospital and/or centrally located, hospital-affiliated community based clinics. The Primary Care/Health Psychology Fellow is integrated in the primary care team and provides assessment, short-term psychotherapy for mild to moderate psychiatric disorders, and health behavior assessments and interventions (e.g., weight management, diabetes management, smoking cessation, etc.). They also frequently consult with primary care providers to help enhance the level of care patients receive during their primary care appointments. There is also the possibility of rotations in medical specialty care clinics and doing inpatient psychology consultation to the inpatient medical and psychiatric units. 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:
