The Postdoctoral Fellowship in Psychotic Disorders provides flexible, experiential training in treatment, assessment, and research of individuals with a psychotic illness, especially the early stage of psychosis.  The fellowship adheres to the scientist-practitioner training model and is designed to prepare individuals for careers as clinical psychologists in academic and/or research settings, based on their individual interests and career goals.  This is a 1-year fellowship with possible re-appointment for a second year depending on availability of funding and satisfactory progress during the first year of the fellowship.  The fellowship is well-suited for individuals that: 1) Have pre-doctoral clinical training in assessment and/or intervention of individuals with a psychotic illness; 2) Have a strong record of research experience; and 3) Are scientist-practitioners intending to pursue a clinical and/or academic research career in psychiatry.
