The Georgia State University Counseling and Testing Center (CTC) postdoctoral 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 two hours per week of individual face-to-face supervision with senior psychologists who have been licensed for more than three 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. Fellows also participate one hour per week in psycho-educational programming, eight hours per week of walk-in coverage of initial consultations, as well as triages and emergencies. The postdoctoral training program includes individual supervision from two senior psychologists and group supervision/case conference with other fellows on a weekly basis.
Postdoctoral fellows work in close collaboration with the staff of the CTC with many of the same responsibilities as the clinical staff at the center. Fellows attend all weekly clinical meetings, training and professional development meetings, as well as case conferences.
