CentraCare—St. Cloud Hospital
Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship

Program Description

The Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship at St. Cloud Hospital/CentraCare Health provides one year of training with opportunities in the following areas of specialty: 1) Child Clinical Psychology (therapy and assessment), and 2) Adult Clinical Psychology (therapy and/or assessment). These fellowships are designed to compliment your background and to provide more focused and in-depth training in your chosen substantive specialty practice area.

St. Cloud Hospital provides family-centered care for patients of all ages. As the largest behavioral health service provider in the geographical area, our clinic receives a variety of referrals for patients of all ages with a wide range of presenting difficulties. As part of a larger health organization, behavioral health providers also have the opportunity to work closely with medical specialists including pediatricians, family practice providers, psychiatrists, and other health providers (e.g., occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists).

The fellowship program is designed to provide clinical experiences necessary to support independent practice in clinical and/or health psychology. The fellowship meets all requirements needed for postdoctoral supervised experience, as required by the state of Minnesota and upon completion of the fellowship, fellows will be encouraged to apply for independent licensure.

Clinical Training Opportunities

We aim to tailor the training experience to meet the individual training needs and interests of the fellow. Flexible rotation selection offers opportunities for breadth of experiences, as well as specialization with populations of interests. Supervision plans are created to support a Fellow in their individual trainee needs, as well as ensuring that they meet all professional competencies needed for independent practice.

Both formative (evaluation and feedback provided throughout the year), as well as summative (integrated overview of skills at program completion) evaluations are provided as part of the fellowship training program. We utilize a competency-based training model, reflected in a competency-based measure of fellow skills with clear behavioral anchors. More detailed information on our fellow evaluation processes can reviewed at Review more detailed information on our fellow evaluation processes. (PDF)

Adult Clinical Fellowship

In our Adult Clinical Team we have opportunities to specialize in Integrated Behavioral Health, Eating Disorder evaluation and treatment, trauma-focused treatment, as well as outpatient therapy for diverse patient populations and comprehensive psychological assessments in our outpatient clinic, partial hospitalization program and inpatient mental health unit.

For example, as part of our Integrated Behavioral Health Clinical Team, the fellow would have an opportunity to specialize in Primary and/or Specialty Care Behavioral Health. Utilizing a health psychology approach, the fellow would work within a multidisciplinary clinic care team to support the diverse concerns of patients. This may include behavior changes to support a medical diagnosis and/or general behavioral health concerns.

Child and Adolescent Clinical Fellowship

In our Child and Adolescent Clinical team, we have specialized clinical training in therapy and assessment for diverse patient concerns, including Eating Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma-related diagnoses and adjustment to chronic illness. There are opportunities to do comprehensive assessments in our Outpatient Clinic, Partial Hospitalization Program and Inpatient Mental Health Unit, as well as be a part of our Interdisciplinary Assessment Clinics (ASD and FASD).

For example, specialization in Autism Spectrum Disorder could include participation in an interdisciplinary ASD assessment clinic (including providers in psychology, psychiatry, occupational and speech therapy), completing psychology only assessment for ASD and providing individual, family or group therapy services for individuals with ASD (broad range of ages and levels of functioning).

Supervision and Training Opportunities

Fellows will have the opportunity to work with several supervisors to obtain hours necessary for licensure and will participate in individual supervision and group supervision/consultation, including specialty consultation groups such as: trauma-focused therapy, assessment, multicultural consult. They may also have opportunities to participate in additional consult groups if relevant to their training, including but not limited to integrated behavioral health, eating disorders and sexual and gender medicine consultation groups.

Fellows will participate in regularly scheduled didactics and educational opportunities provided through the Fellowship (such as monthly didactics, cultural humility series, Schwartz Center rounds, etc.), as well as have the opportunity to gain additional educational experiences relevant to their individual training plans.
