Postdoctoral Fellowship

Supervision and Evaluation

Postdoctoral fellows receive up to 4 hours of supervision weekly throughout the fellowship year. Each postdoctoral fellow receives two hours of individual supervision weekly. These are both provided by senior staff members at the Counseling Center. The Primary Supervisor provides supervision for a fellow's clinical work at the Counseling Center and is also responsible for overseeing the licensure process. The Health Specialty Supervisor provides supervision for a fellow's clinical work at the Student Health Center.

Fellows additionally receive up to two hours of group supervision weekly. They meet for one hour bi-weekly with the postdoctoral training coordinator to receive supervision and support related to clinical and professional development (e.g., job search, licensure, etc.) issues). Fellows also meet with the Medical Director of the Student Health Center for  one hour weekly in order to enhance their knowledge of medical presentations of relevance to their patients. The postdoctoral training coordinator attends group supervision meetings with the Medical Director bi-weekly to discuss coordinated care planning. Additional specialty supervision will be available to fellows at their external placement site during the third rotation.

Throughout the training year fellows will be evaluated in formal and informal ways, including: competency evaluation rating forms, client/patient outcome data, record review, self-assessments and training committee updates. Fellows will also have informal and formal opportunities to provide assessments of the program, various training experiences, and their supervision experiences.
