The overall goal of the Advanced Fellowship in Women’s Health is to provide interdisciplinary training to Clinical Psychology Residents to prepare them for careers as independent women’s healthcare specialists. Through a combination of clinical, research, and teaching experiences, cross-disciplinary training opportunities, and supervision from women’s health specialists, Residents will be prepared for a career in the VASDHS that integrates clinical, research, and leadership activities related to women’s health. Specifically, the fellowship provides clinical and clinical research training that: 1) Prepares Residents to provide coordinated, comprehensive, and evidence-based clinical care for women Veterans; 2) Teaches Residents how to translate the scientific literature into sound, evidenced-based practice for women Veterans, 3) Instructs Residents in the evaluation and dissemination of evidence-based practices; and 4) Provides mentored teaching and leadership experiences to impart skills and knowledge that will allow the Residents to ultimately serve as advanced clinicians and clinical researchers, advocates, educators, and mentors in the field of women’s mental health within the VA system.
