POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT

Salud Family Health Centers is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with 13 clinics dedicated to providing primary health services to all the residents of a defined catchment area, covering 8 counties in north-central Colorado.  The Salud system follows an integrated model of care that aims to ensure high quality medical, dental, and behavioral health services to traditionally underserved populations, thus reducing barriers to care.

The Fellowship is a one-year, full-time position in integrated primary care psychology.  The training program is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). We are seeking 3 Postdoctoral Fellows (preferably bilingual) for the upcoming training year.  The specific clinic placement of each Fellow will be based on clinic need and trainee preference.  The Fellow will function as an integral part of the healthcare team in that clinic, which includes other behavioral health providers. Primary job duties will include conducting mental health screenings and diagnostic evaluations, providing consultation services and brief interventions as requested by primary care providers, and providing individual, family, and/or group psychotherapy consistent with the Fellow’s experience and specific interests.  In addition, the Fellow will conduct psychological assessments as requested by the treating team, including cognitive and personality. The Fellow will provide supervision, under supervision of a licensed psychologist, to graduate practicum students (as available).  There will be various opportunities for teaching, research, and learning about and becoming involved in management and administration as they arise and are consistent with the Fellow’s interest.  The approximate start date for this position is August 27, 2018.
