The fellowship can be renewed for a second year and third year. Annual salary is $45,900 for year 1, $48,400 for year 2 + health benefits. Research assistant support is provided, along with funds to attend an annual professional conference.

VA Advanced Psychiatry Fellowships and Post-doctoral Fellowship Programs

The VA Advanced Psychiatry Fellowship and Post-doctoral Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research and Treatment is a National Fellowship affiliated with the University of Michigan, Department of Psychiatry, and based within SMITREC/MHSOT. The primary method of training for fellows is supervised service delivery in direct contact with patients, although there is an additional strong focus on research skill development. The goals of the Fellowships are to provide mentored experience in clinical skill development, treatment evaluation, research design and implementation, publication of research and evaluation products, and grant writing. Post-doctoral fellows receive supervised clinical training sufficient for license eligibility. Postdoctoral applicants must be graduates of APA-accredited doctoral programs in clinical or counseling psychology, have completed an APA-accredited internship, and be U.S. citizens. Post-residency physician applicants must have completed ACGME-accredited residency training, be board eligible or board certified, and have an active, unrestricted U.S. license to practice. International medical graduates must have a current visa and an ECFMG certificate that is valid indefinitely.
