Counseling Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship
This position is classified job code 9546 - Post-Doctoral Associate: Postdoctoral associates are academic employees who conduct research, teach, or provide service that enhances career skills or allows for opportunities to learn new research or teaching techniques. For information about postdoctoral associate opportunities at the University of Minnesota, please visit .
Applications for this position will not be reviewed until February 2023. Potential position start is August 2023 (negotiable).
Given current mandates in medical education to train a more diverse physician workforce, trainee cohorts are becoming more diverse and inclusive. As such, the demands and challenges experienced by trainees have, correspondingly, become more diverse and nuanced as well. To meet the enriching opportunities these needs present, particular consideration will be given to applicants with diverse ethnic, racial, economic, and educational backgrounds and experiences; and who have a special interest in working with (and developing support structures for) trainees who identify as coming from historically marginalized communities. The program is also looking for BIPOC applicants from groups that historically have been underrepresented in providing psychological services in a medical education setting.
The postdoctoral fellowship emphasizes a generalist training that prepares graduates to provide psychologically-informed services and consultation to trainees, faculty and staff in a medical education setting. These include specific services informed by a comprehensive prevention model (i.e., primary, secondary and tertiary levels of intervention), and direct, collaborative efforts with affiliated medical school offices and committees. Structured educational activities include didactic seminars, project development and implementation, qualified individual supervision (for licensing requirements), and participation in professional conferences. Support in cultivating professional connections within BIPOC networks in the broader state and local professional psychology communities will also be provided (and encouraged).
Lastly, this position will be inclusive of annual training periods and objectives adapted to the relative assets and training needs of respective fellows. While this position supports trainees across medical education [from primary training (undergraduate medical education - UME) to residency and fellowship (graduate medical education - GME)], the training would prepare a professional for a variety of settings.
Specific roles and responsibilities of the position may include the following:
Remediation and Crisis Support - 20%
Program Development and Education - 40%
Service and Professional Development - 10%
