The Counseling & Health Services (C&HS) office is an integrated
medical and mental health clinic, guided by an ethic of holistic wellness for
clients and staff alike. The purpose of the post-doctoral fellowship is to
provide varied learning opportunities within a supportive work environment, and
thereby facilitate a smooth transition from trainee to autonomous
professional. Upon completion of this one year, full-time position, the
post-doctoral counselor will be fully prepared to obtain licensure as a
psychologist in the state of Minnesota.
The post-doctoral fellowship affords opportunities to work closely with
a multi-disciplinary team of 4 psychologists, a physician assistant, a nurse
practitioner, an RN, a medical assistant, a part-time family practice
physician, and a part-time psychiatrist.
Counseling services are delivered primarily in an individual format, but
the post-doctoral counselor will also have opportunities to provide group
counseling, couples counseling, crisis intervention, outreach, and consultation
to members of the university community.
Training for the fellowship includes one hour of weekly individual
supervision, and one hour of weekly group case consultation.
