The Georgia State University Counseling and Testing Center post-doctoral fellowship in psychology is designed for individuals who are interested in meeting the requirements for licensure as a psychologist and working with a diverse population in an urban university counseling center setting. The 2000 hour postdoctoral program meets all requirements for licensure in the State of Georgia, including a minimum of 500 direct clinical contact hours. Full-time, one year postdoctoral fellows are awarded 2 hours a week of individual face-to-face supervision with senior psychologists who have been licensed for more than 3 years.
The training program focuses on developing advanced practice skills necessary to function as a generalist psychologist. Full-time fellows schedule approximately 15-19 hours a week in individual, group and couples therapy, 1 hour a week in psycho-educational programming, 8 hours a week for walk in coverage of initial consultations, as well as triages and emergencies. The postdoctoral training program includes individual supervision from at two senior psychologists and group supervision/case conference with other fellows on a weekly basis.
Post-doctoral fellows work in close collaboration with the staff of the Counseling and Testing Center and function as a professional with many of the same responsibilities as the clinical staff at the Center. Fellows attend all weekly clinical meetings, training and professional development meetings and case conferences.
