 Post-Doctoral Psychology Outcome Data

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A primary goal of the program is to prepare the fellow to bring a depth of knowledge, skills and experience to their future job and contributions in the field of psychology. Fellows accomplish a number of milestones on the way to this outcome. 

Milestones  include: passing the EPPP; becoming licensed in Wisconsin; completing the professional statement and work sample for the ABPP application; and successfully performing in a nearly autonomous manner in specialty clinics and medical units on which they were trained. ​ 

The program and faculty incorporate these milestones in the seminar series, supervision, clinical instruction and patient care. Supervision is provided in initially close and frequent contact to develop a mentoring relationship with primarily two faculty, then tapering as the fellow demonstrates competence to function in an increasingly autonomous role.
