Two Postdoctoral Fellowships in Psychology, The PRACTICE: A UNLV Community Mental Health Clinic

Nevada is 47th in the nation for psychologists per capita.  Without sounding too cliche, where there is great need, there is great opportunity.  Nevada is a place where there is room to have a great deal of influence in one’s destiny as a psychologist; and where a psychologist can make a tangible difference in the community.  There is plenty of work to go around, plenty of work to do, and a committed professional community to support you in doing so.  It’s a place where “you” are wanted, needed, and welcomed with open arms.  It’s a place where you have a chance to make a big splash quickly.  The need is so great, if you are a skilled clinician, there are plenty of opportunities whether it be in private practice (you’ll be full and running on a wait list before you know it); public settings; expanding VA hospital/clinics; or the new medical school.

Our clinic is also expanding and we provide our postdoctoral trainees excellent, attentive, diligent supervision with opportunities to gain increasing independence and to influence and build our programs alongside us.
