The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology is a year-long rigorous program housed in an interdisciplinary setting. The program is comprised of two fellows who, in their training year, provide comprehensive mental health services to children, adolescents, and young adults ranging from ages 10-26.
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center (MSAHC) Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology training model aims to prepare fellows to become competent, independent practitioners in the field of professional psychology, and to be equipped to work with underserved youth and within integrated healthcare settings. We aim to train fellows to become, confident, and comfortable providing developmentally and culturally sensitive intervention and assessment services to historically underserved youth. To this end, we have aligned the model for our training program with the mission of the MSAHC – to break down racial, social, and economic barriers to health care, health, and well-being for young people by providing vital services—high quality, comprehensive, integrated, confidential, and at no cost to them—for all who come to us. We provide these services to promote equity and within the frameworks of racial, social, economic, and sexual and reproductive justice.
Throughout the year, fellows are immersed in clinical training activities that emphasize engaging underserved youth and working on interdisciplinary teams. Fellows will have the opportunity to provide evidence-based, trauma-informed interventions, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), among others. Fellows also provide services to transgender and gender non-conforming youth, and serve as clinicians in an integrated primary care setting. A large portion of the fellow’s training experience at MSAHC is to provide comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological evaluations through the Psychological Assessment Service. Fellows will also have the opportunity to supervise trainees throughout their post-doctoral training year.
Fellows attend a two-hour weekly didactic seminar for the duration of the year. The seminars focus on topics relevant to the treatment of adolescents and young adults. Particular attention is paid to developing culturally competent and evidence-based practices in the seminar series.
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center of Mount Sinai Health System is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in our recruiting of all staff and trainees. Applications from qualified minority students are strongly encouraged.
The fellowship program begins in August. Candidates must be enrolled in an APA-Accredited clinical, school, or counseling doctoral program (Ph.D. or Psy.D.), and be on track to graduate by the end of June 2023.
