The Associated Health Professional track of the Fellowship provides interdisciplinary training to postdoctoral fellows in clinical psychology, nursing or social work to prepare them for careers as leaders in VA women’s healthcare. The program is APA Accredited for clinical psychologists. Current research mentorship is available in the areas of psychopathology (particularly trauma-related, anxiety and substance use disorders), behavioral medicine (including pain, sleep, chronic disease, health behaviors, sexual and reproductive functioning), TBI, life course issues (including perinatal mental health, menopause and aging), clinical trials, technology and complementary and integrative interventions; additional interests can be accommodated if there is faculty expertise. The Fellowship combines mentored clinical, research and teaching experiences, with interdisciplinary didactic and training opportunities. Fellows spend approximately 75% of their time on clinical research, with the opportunity to participate in ongoing research projects conducted by program faculty, initiate independent research projects, and prepare applications for grant funding. Fellows also receive training in evidence-based practices and provide supervised direct clinical care to women Veterans.
