Clinical Program Fellowships
Depending on funding, one to three fellowships are available in specialized behavioral programs, listed below. In addition to their primary area of concentration, fellows will also see individual clients presenting with a full spectrum of psychological difficulties.
Our fellows work with nationally recognized experts and gain experience and expertise in their area of interest, all while receiving a guaranteed salary and benefits as they work through the licensure process. The Director of Training is based at the Macklind office and will have, at a minimum, one hour of weekly contact with all fellows. Fellowships are scheduled to begin each year in September.
