All applicants must have completed all graduation requirements from an APA-accredited doctoral program in Clinical or Counseling Psychology and an APA-accredited predoctoral internship in Psychology by September 1st of the fellowship year. As a desire to work with a veteran population is required, practicum or internship at a VHA facility is encouraged, but not mandatory. Given the specialty training in Rehabilitation Psychology, prior clinical experiences in this area are highly recommended.

WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2014-2015 TRAINING YEAR. WE EXPECT TO OFFER TWO POSITIONS FOR THE 2015-2017 TRAINING YEARS.
