 Adult Psychology Fellowship

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

Thank you for your interest in our Adult Clinical Psychology Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program.  For the past 24 years, psychology faculty at the Marshfield Clinic Department of Psychiatry has coordinated a successful and respected child/adolescent and pediatric psychology fellowship.  We are pleased to expand our training programs for 2017 to include two adult clinical psychology fellowship positions.  Our start date is September 5, 2017.

Our program mission is to train 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.  MCHS includes:  a large tertiary care medical center with 50 satellite clinics, 2 hospitals, a health insurance plan, a state of the art electronic health record managed by Marshfield Clinic Information Systems, numerous dental clinics, a large medical research institute, and laboratories.  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 outpatient psychiatric practice as well as diverse experience  integrating psychological skills into medical practice.  Our program embodies the APA vision for training competent practitioners in health service psychology for the 21st century. 

We have two adult psychology fellowship positions.  Our fellowship is truly a program of comprehensive training which is important to distinguish from on-the-job supervised training experiences that you might see elsewhere.  Our program incorporates significant depth and breadth of supervised training with flexibility in programming across two core areas: 

1. Outpatient behavioral health practice with exposure to a full spectrum of adult psychological disorders.

2. Health psychology practice within, and in affiliation with, specialty medical departments.

To develop competency for early career placement in competitive settings, we have developed our psychology fellowship program to be 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, completion of Wisconsin state licensure, and preparation for board certification.  While attaining supervised clinical hours for licensure is a necessary "step" of our fellowship training, the program will provide you with far more to help you reach a higher destination for your career.   If you are still considering the value to your career for pursuing fellowship training, please check this short APPIC article for more information. 

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 answers to questions not addressed on these Web pages.
