Our Post-Doctoral Fellowship is a twelve-month, full-time experience. (Full Michigan licensure requires 2000 post-doctoral hours.) The intent of this program is to support new professionals during the transition from internship to licensure. Fundamental to this program is our value of working in multicultural, multi-disciplinary and multi-theoretical environment, which we believe enriches us both personally and professionally. We strive to create a micro-community at CAPS that reflects the university and mental health fields at large. Post-Docs are expected to value and respect collaboration, teamwork, effective conflict processes, self-awareness, and openness to learning. Post-Doctoral Fellows receive supervision, mentoring, and participate in a weekly seminar. Post-Docs provide service in: intake 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 clinical screening assessments of substance use/abuse, and eating issues. Fellows also serve on agency committees. In addition, Post-Doctoral Fellows will choose an area of specialization. Examples include but are not limited to: 1. Administration (clinical, training, or outreach) 2. Clinical Practice (anxiety; eating disorders; multicultural counseling, etc.) and 3. Outreach (to specific campus communities, campus substance abuse network or eating issues network, etc.). Additional program information and learning supports are described on our web site: https://caps.umich.edu/topic/post-doctoral-fellowship-professional-psychology

Clinical services offered both in person and remotely. Currently, fellows are given the option of working 2 days from home and 3 days in the office. This is subject to change in accordance with University of Michigan policies.

Research opportunities
Post-Doctoral Fellows may choose clinical scholarship/writing as a specialty area. Please note that research projects are largely dependent on the ongoing projects of our research coordinator. Additionally, most research time would occur during the spring/summer terms of the post doc year when the clinical demand is smaller.
Application Instructions
Applications should include: A letter of introduction, A current vita, two letters of recommendation, one of the two being the internship supervisor, and an official graduate school transcript submitted via email to amscott@umich.edu. Applications are due. Official transcripts need to arrive in order to make the offer for the position, but can arrive separate from the cover letter and CV, as they are likely coming from a third party distributer.
