About the fellowship
The Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship provides psychologists with training and professional experience leading to the fulfillment of New York State licensure as a psychologist. Candidates may choose between training in adult psychoanalysis and psychotherapy or in child, adolescent, and family therapy. This is a half-time (20 hours/week) position and extends over two years. The following four components will comprise the fellowship:
Direct clinical work with 4-5 psychotherapy patients and approximately one or two clinical intakes per week for which Fellows will be paid on a fee for service basis.

- Weekly, psychodynamically oriented individual supervision and monthly group supervision.
- Teaching two classes per semester in the undergraduate psychology or masters-level Mental Health Counseling Program. Fellows will be paid at the University adjunct rate.
Psychology Fellows may also have the opportunity to develop specialized skills working with couples and/or psychotherapy groups. This Fellowship will provide exposure to a variety of theoretical and methodological psychodynamic models through coursework and through work with a variety of supervisors. All experience will count towards New York State licensing requirements. In addition, all classes, supervision, and clinical experience obtained during the Fellowship will be credited towards certification in our programs.
Applicants are required to have earned a Psy.D. or Ph.D. in clinical, counseling or school psychology, to have completed an internship, and to have a limited permit to practice in New York State.
