The Dayton VA Medical Center has availability of a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Primary Care Integration, Women’s Health, and Behavioral Medicine. The training year will begin in mid-late August 2017.

The fellowship program is primarily located in the Primary Care Outpatient Clinic at the Dayton VA Medical Center. Within Primary Care, psychologists function in the context of a co-located, collaborative mental health integrated team (PC-MHI). All PC-MHI psychologists are imbedded within their respective Primary Care "teamlets" that include a Provider, an RN, an LPN, and an MSA. Services include consultation, assessment, brief therapy, and staff education. Treatments offered are brief, evidence based CBT based interventions and psychoeducational groups.  Fellows will also participate in health related activities, such as facilitating MOVE! Classes, tobacco cessation shared medical appointments, and working in medical specialty clinics (e.g., diabetes, congestive heart failure). Fellows will gain experience providing consultation to the inpatient medical and surgical units throughout the medical center and the Emergency Department. Please click here for additional details.
