The focus of this Fellowship is to provide individuals with supervised clinical practice aimed to refine their clinical skills in preparation for functioning as independent practitioners in a university mental health setting. Fellows experience a supportive environment that encourages greater professional autonomy balanced with support and numerous opportunities for consultation with seasoned senior staff throughout the year.

The Clinical Fellowship program at UCS is part of our focused multidisciplinary training program. The primary role of the Clinical Fellow is to provide clinical services utilizing the experiences gleaned from completion of an internship program or other relevant experience.  “Learning by doing” is the philosophical foundation of the training as Fellows focus on the provision of individual and group psychotherapy to UWM students.  The Fellows will also have the opportunity to hone their outreach and prevention skills as they work with the Office of Housing to support UWM residential students. 

Access to formal training activities, including a weekly case conference, assists individuals with the integration and augmentation of former training and clinical practice experiences. Clinical Fellows maintain a flexible work schedule that includes working five days a week with two of these days including some evening hours. The Clinical Fellowship is a multidisciplinary training opportunity that may include representatives from psychology, counseling or social work fields.  UCS has a dual mission to serve the mental health needs of UWM students, as well as to prepare the next generation of mental health practitioners for careers in counseling.  UCS offers training to a multidisciplinary cohort each year, comprised of Clinical Fellows, psychology practicum students, and Social Work students.
