 Adult Clinical and Health Psychology Fellowship

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A Message from the Training Director

Thank you for your interest in our Adult Clinical and Health Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.  Selection for a new class of postdoctoral fellows is February 25th, 2019 and our start date for the fellowship is September 3, 2019.

Our program mission focuses on training future psychologists to function with high levels of competency, diverse clinical skills and leadership in multidisciplinary health care and community settings. Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) provides an unparalleled training environment to achieve this mission. 

Marshfield Medical Center (MMC) is the "hub" for our fellowship program.  Located in Marshfield, Wisconsin, over 400 physicians and advance practice providers work with patients across a broad range of primary care and specialty medical departments in our nationally renowned organization.   MMC also includes a 300 bed tertiary care hospital and Level II Trauma Center, ambulatory surgery center, skilled nursing facility, pharmacies, laboratory, research institution and medical library.  With a referral base of over 2 million people, our fellowship program will provide you with a valuable opportunity to gain broad experience with a variety of adult patients in our Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Department and through Behavioral Health  integration into specialty medical departments.  For psychology trainees who are interested in gaining diverse assessment and treatment experience in a multidisciplinary medical setting, we hope that you will strongly consider this fellowship opportunity.

We have two Adult Clinical and Health Psychology fellowship positions available.  Our fellowship is truly a program of comprehensive training that incorporates significant depth and breadth of supervised clinical training and didactic activity with flexibility in programming across two core areas:  

1. Outpatient psychiatric assessment, psychological testing, consultation and treatment in our Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Department with exposure to a full spectrum of adult psychological disorders.

2. Health Psychology consultation in affiliation with multiple specialty medical departments and medical teams.

We are one of only a handful "hybrid" fellowship programs in the United States incorporating both Clinical and Health Psychology training into a combined curriculum. To accomplish these broad training goals in both specialty areas for early career placement in competitive settings, our psychology fellowship program is two years in duration.  We understand that a full-time, two-year fellowship is a major commitment to your training.  We strongly believe that the training incorporated into our two-year program will offer you significant benefits for career acceleration.  In addition, you will have support for completion of the EPPP and Wisconsin state licensure as well as preparation for board certification. 

We invite you to review our program and faculty through this webpage.  Our faculty is composed of dedicated professionals who strive for clinical excellence and value teaching as an important part of their career. I trust that you will experience great benefit in being immersed in a dynamic of close supervisory relationships within expansive clinical and professional training opportunities.  We welcome you to see our outstanding facilities and explore the Marshfield community firsthand.   

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions you have.
