Medical Psychology Fellowship Program: APA-Accredited in the specialty practice areas of
Clinical Child Psychology, Clinical Health Psychology, & Clinical Adult and Pediatric Neuropsychology
The Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, Mayo Clinic Rochester, is accepting applications for our APA-accredited two-year specialty practice programs. Applicants must come from APA- or CPA-accredited graduate programs and internships and apply to one of our three programs. Fellowship positions are available for July 1, 2019. Start dates are flexible. The program’s aim is for fellows to achieve advanced competencies in their respective areas of specialty (clinical child psychology, health psychology, clinical neuropsychology) to prepare them for employment in academic health centers and board certification in professional psychology. The Medical Psychology Fellow's experience in each specialty practice area combines clinical, educational, and research activities, with at least 50% time in clinical activities. Fellows select research mentors and have 30% protected research time. Educational opportunities are tailored and include weekly departmental grand rounds, case conferences, journal club, and didactic seminars. Fellows also receive funding for attendance and/or presenting at professional conferences.
CLINICAL CHILD PSYCHOLOGY
The Clinical Child Psychology fellowship offers supervised advanced clinical training, education, and research activities in the areas of clinical child psychology and/or pediatric psychology, with opportunities for greater depth of experience within the specialty (e.g., anxiety disorders, mood disorders, chronic pain and autonomic dysfunction, consultation/liaison, weight management).
Fellows spend less than 50% of time in clinical service (e.g., assessment, intervention, consultation) with children and adolescents, their families, and multidisciplinary teams. Clinical activities include an outpatient therapy caseload throughout the fellowship (about 20% of fellows’ time) and rotations in specialty services (about 40% of fellows’ time), with experiences related to diagnostic assessment, weekly treatment groups, intensive outpatient treatment programs, and outpatient and hospital-based consultation. Rotation schedules are based upon the fellow’s interests and training goals.
The application deadline is December 21, 2018, for Clinical Child Psychology.
CLINICAL HEALTH PSYCHOLOGY
The Clinical Health Psychology Fellowship aims for fellows to achieve advanced competencies in clinical health psychology to prepare them for employment in academic health centers and board certification in clinical health psychology.
Fellows will have less than 50% of supervised clinical service delivery time (e.g., assessment, intervention, consultation). Fellows choose one of the following specialty areas for a major rotation: obesity & bariatric surgery, pain rehabilitation, primary care, psycho-oncology, or transgender and intersex specialty care. The major rotation focus will comprise 80% of the supervised practice hours. Minor rotations provide additional breadth (<20% time). Rotation schedules are based upon the fellow’s interests and training goals.
The application deadline is December 12, 2018 for Clinical Health Psychology.
CLINICAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGY (SEPARATE ADULT & PEDIATRIC SPECIALTY TRACKS)
The Mayo Clinic Neuropsychology Specialty Program provides fellows with a depth and breadth of assessment, educational, consultative, intervention, administrative and research experiences that prepares fellows for board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology by the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology. We adhere to guidelines proposed by the Joint Task Force of Division 40 of the APA and the Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Psychology. We offer a Major Area of Study in Clinical Neuropsychology. Upon completion of this training, fellows will have an advanced understanding of neuropathologic mechanisms mediating behavioral and cognitive deficits in major categories of neurological disease, a working knowledge of neuropsychological disorders in general medical and psychiatric settings, and will demonstrate intervention skills with neuropsychological disorders.
