VA INTERPROFESSIONAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM IN PSYCHOSOCIAL REHABILITATION
AND RECOVERY ORIENTED SERVICE: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announces openings for the 2014–2015 academic
year for its interprofessional fellowship program in psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery oriented services for veterans with serious mental illness. The fellowship program
is a state-of-the-art, clinical training
program that focuses on the theory
and practice of psychosocial rehabilitation. Individualized, mentored
clinical and research training is combined with a curriculum that emphasizes a comprehensive psychosocial
rehabilitation approach to service
delivery, education, and implementing change in a mental health care
setting. Fellows will work with veterans with serious mental illnesses,
including schizophrenia, schizoaf-fective disorder, other psychoses, bipolar disorder, and major depression
and receive training in delivering a
range of evidence-based practices.
Veterans may also have co-occurring
diagnoses, such as PTSD, substance
use disorders, depression, and anxiety. The purpose of the interprofessional fellowship program is to develop future mental health leaders with
vision, knowledge, and commitment
to transforming mental health care
systems in the 21st century by emphasizing functional capability, rehabilitation, and recovery. The fellowship program is offered at six
VA sites (see below). Applications
are being solicited across a range of
disciplines (including psychology,
psychiatry, nursing, social work, vocational rehabilitation, and occupational therapy). Application and position details vary across disciplines.
Psychology fellows must be U.S.
citizens and must be graduates of
APA-accredited academic programs
and internships. The Fellowship program is full time for psychology fellows. Stipends are competitive and
based in part on location. Psychology fellows are eligible for health
and life insurance benefits. All fellows earn annual and sick leave
and are entitled to all Federal holidays. Applications will be accepted and reviewed at each site until all positions are filled. Application requirements and specifications
may differ across site, so contact:
