Following the completion of the clinical psychology internship, contingent upon funding, a one-year postdoctoral fellowship may be available to qualified applicants. Fellowships have been available in the Infant Mental Health concentration annually for over a decade. We have had fellows in other child and adult settings, including at Tulane Hospital and Medical Center and in community-based programs in which Tulane faculty work.
The postdoctoral fellow receives more advanced training than that obtained during the internship year. The training is individualized to meet the needs and interests of the fellow, and generally has included teaching and consultation opportunities as well as clinical service delivery. The fellow assists faculty members with instruction and supervision of graduate students and psychology interns. Weekly supervision towards fulfilling the requirements for licensure as a psychologist is provided by a full-time Tulane clinical psychology faculty member.
