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., pediatric 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.

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.

Our adult clinical team has opportunities to specialize in outpatient therapy for diverse patient concerns, as well as specialization in the areas of eating disorders, and/or trauma interventions.

For example, specialization in eating disorders could include participation in a monthly interdisciplinary assessment clinic with a psychologist, a dietitian, and a medical provider.
