The University of Michigan Counseling and Psychological Services provides a full-time, twelve-month Post-Doctoral Fellowship. The post-doctoral cohort consists of 3 fellows, and we are currently looking to fill our one remaining opening for the 2021-2022 training year. Our program is in compliance with the requisites for APPIC membership and is listed in the current APPIC Directory. We are currently accepting applications on a rolling basis. Applications should consist of a cover letter, CV, and list of two references, with one of those being a current clinical supervisor. We also require a copy of a candidates official transcripts. Please send materials via email to Karen Henry, Psy.D at  


Post-Doctoral Fellows provide service in: initial clinical evaluation; individual counseling and psychotherapy (both brief and longer when appropriate); crisis intervention and emergency services; third party consultation; outreach; program development; group interventions (structured, semi-structured or process groups); and supervision of practicum students. Opportunities are available to conduct specialized clinical screening assessments of alcohol and other drugs and eating and body image issues.  Fellows also serve on agency committees.

In addition, Post-Doctoral Fellows will develop an area of specialization. Examples include but are not limited to:

1. Administration (e.g. clinical, training, or outreach)

2. Clinical Practice (e.g. mindfulness-based therapies; couples; brief treatment of trauma; focused services to students with a particular social identity such as students of color or LGBT students)

3. Outreach (e.g. to specific campus communities, and/or general programming)


Orientation begins August 9, 2021.


The University of Michigan Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS), is a unit within Student Life. We continue to grow to meet the needs of the student body.

We are a counseling center that affirms diversity, condemns oppression in every form, and encourages the utilization of our services by all students, including those that might be reluctant to receive standard/traditional forms of treatment. To this end, we seek to provide a safe, welcoming and affirming environment for all. CAPS is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services (IACS), and the doctoral internship is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).
