Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship

Department of Psychiatry Psychology Fellowship Program
Boston Medical Center is the largest safety net hospital in New England and the primary teaching hospital for the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine. The Department of Psychiatry is made up of a diverse group of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, and trainees. The psychology postdoctoral fellowship program offers opportunities to gain specialized training in culturally responsive, evidence-based treatments for adult patients living with psychosis, trauma and related disorders, chronic medical conditions, and substance use disorders; and for child/adolescent patients and families within underserved community health centers. Fellows can develop competencies in trauma-focused treatments, immigrant and refugee mental health, integrated behavioral health, behavioral medicine, community-based focus, and trauma informed care. In addition to specialized training, we also offer training in general core competencies of professional psychology and support towards applying for professional licensure. Applicants are welcome to apply to one or multiple fellowship openings across the program.
