Overview of Program
The focus of this fellowship is to provide individuals with supervised clinical practice opportunities to refine clinical skills in preparation for functioning as an independent practitioner in a university mental health setting. Fellows experience a supportive environment that encourages greater professional autonomy balanced with support and numerous opportunities for consultation with seasoned senior staff throughout the year. Clinical Fellows are valued as contributing colleagues within a broader multidisciplinary mental health training program and human service agency housed within a university community.
The Clinical Fellowship program at CCS is a distinct program in our comprehensive, multidisciplinary training program. The primary role of the Clinical Fellow is to provide clinical services utilizing the experiences gleaned from completion of an internship program or other relevant experience. A “learning by doing” philosophy of training is the foundation of the Clinical Fellow program, in part, based on the assumption that a more structured/didactic approach to training was provided in prior training experiences. Access to formal training activities, including a weekly group supervision/case conference, assists individuals with the integration and augmentation of former training and clinical practice experiences. Clinical Fellows maintain a flexible work schedule that includes working five days a week with two of these days including evening hours. The Clinical Fellowship is a multidisciplinary training program that may include representatives from psychology, counseling and social work fields.
