Postdoctoral Fellowships in Clinical Psychology with Emphasis on PTSD: Boston, MA
Fellowships: Clinical Psychology - PTSD emphasis
Postdoctoral Fellowships: Boston, MA
Postdoctoral positions through the VA Boston Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program are APA accredited and are located within the VA Boston Healthcare System (VABHS). VABHS has affiliations with both Boston University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School; it is anticipated that fellows will receive dual appointments with these affiliates during their fellowship year.
The structure of the VA Boston Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program follows a multiple practice format as defined by APA's Policy Statements and Implementing Regulations. The Fellowship Program is organized into two separate areas: (1) the substantive traditional practice area of Clinical Psychology, and (2) the specialty practice area of Clinical Neuropsychology. Within the Clinical Psychology Training Program, we offer training in nine areas of emphasis ("tracks"): Geropsychology, General Mental Health, Behavioral Medicine, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Substance Abuse, Dual Diagnosis, Interprofessional Mental Health, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Healthcare, and Returning Veterans and Substance Abuse.
Training for Clinical fellows accepted into the PTSD track is for the duration of one year. Salary and benefits are competitive. Training in the PTSD track occurs within the two local VA divisions of the National Center for PTSD (Behavioral Science and Women's Health Sciences). PTSD faculty provide advanced clinical training within specialized outpatient programs for male and female veterans. Additionally, staff are active in research and offer a range of research opportunities to complement the clinical emphasis of the PTSD training program.
