The Vanderbilt University Department of Psychiatry Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program in Professional Psychology offers multiple tracks within the clinical and research programs affiliated with the department.  The Fellowship is described in detail in the Vanderbilt University Department of Psychiatry Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Manual which can be downloaded below:

Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program in Professional Psychology: 2021-22 Training Manual

The majority of fellows’ time is spent at their primary sites, with one-half day per week (typically on Fridays) spent in collective training activities with other members of the Postdoctoral Fellow cohort and/or with advanced trainees and faculty members in other disciplines, such as psychiatry residents and fellows. These combined training activities include didactic presentations, research seminars, case conferences, and weekly Grand Rounds presentations.

The specific constellation of activities is determined by the primary sites, which are described in detail in the Fellowship Training Manual. However, all tracks include a minimum of two hours of individual weekly supervision provided by a licensed psychologist, a combination of clinical and research activities, and opportunities to specialize in a particular area of intervention.

The following training tracks are available for the 2021-2022 training year:

  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship in Autism Spectrum Disorder
  2. Postdoctoral Fellowship in Child Welfare and Trauma-Informed Care at the Vanderbilt Center for Excellence
  3. Postdoctoral Fellowship in Psychotic Disorders
  4. Postdoctoral Fellowship in Health Psychology at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Vanderbilt
  5. Postdoctoral Fellowship in Teaching and Provision of Evidence-Based Psychotherapies
