 Psychology Fellowship Application Criteria


Our recruitment starts in October 2020. We invite applicants from APA/CPA accredited graduate psychology programs and APA accredited internship sites to apply.  Applicants must demonstrate that all requirements for the doctoral degree will be met and the doctoral degree will be awarded prior to the start of the fellowship. 

You may submit application materials using the APPIC Psychology Postdoctoral application Central Application system (APPA CAS) available here. Include in the APPA CAS documents your reasons for seeking this fellowship, your training and career goals, what assets you bring to the fellowship, and three letters of recommendation (with particular reference to your clinical skills).


Graduate School and Internship: Applications will be accepted from individuals who have received or will be receiving their doctoral degree from an APA or CPA-accredited graduate program.  Applicants must have completed or be in the process of completing an internship at an APA-accredited internship program.

Clinical Experience: At the beginning of the postdoctoral psychology fellowship, the fellow must have completed at least 1500 hours of supervised experience in clinical practice during graduate school and/or internship training. 

Licensure: Should Wisconsin adopt an interim license for postdoctoral psychology fellows, fellows agree to attain the interim licensure as soon as possible during the fellowship.  Applicants who seek to continue in the fellowship program for a second year must attain licensure as a psychologist in the State of Wisconsin.  Obtaining your first license is a major professional milestone.  We provide significant support to assist fellow with this process.  A more detailed description of the requirements for licensure in Wisconsin can be obtained from the State of Wisconsin Psychology Examining Board. Please review these requirements and forms.

Credentialing:  You must be available via both email and mail during the two months prior to the start of fellowship to complete paperwork for credentialing.
