 Adult Clinical and Health Psychology Fellowship

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A Message from the Training Director

Thank you for your interest in our Adult Clinical and Health Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The start date for our next class of fellows is September 1, 2021.  Our program mission focuses on training future psychologists to function with high levels of competency, diverse clinical skills and leadership in multidisciplinary health care and community settings.

We have two Adult Clinical and Health Psychology fellowship positions available.  Our fellowship is truly a program of comprehensive training that incorporates opportunity to acquire significant depth and breadth of supervised clinical training and didactic activity with flexibility in programming across two core areas:  

1. Outpatient psychiatric assessment, psychological testing, consultation and treatment in our Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Department with exposure to a full spectrum of adult psychological disorders.

2. Clinical health psychology consultation in affiliation with primary care and multiple specialty medical departments and medical teams.

We are a unique "hybrid" fellowship program, incorporating both Clinical and Clinical Health Psychology training into a combined curriculum.  To accomplish these broad training goals in both specialty areas for early career placement in competitive settings, our psychology fellowship program is an optional 1 to 2 years in duration. Whether you wish to do a one-year fellowship or stay for the additional career enhancing benefits of a second year, that decision is open to you and we will support what you decide as you settle in and see the options and benefits.  The two year option has been preferred by former fellows and evolved from our findings that a two-year fellowship has significant benefits for career acceleration for our graduates. Support for completion of the EPPP and Wisconsin state licensure as well as preparation for board certification are incorporated into the training experience. 

Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) provides an unparalleled training environment to achieve our program's  mission.  MCHS and Marshfield Medical Center is a unique setting where fellows benefit from learning in a large tertiary care medical center (one of the largest non-profit medical centers in the U.S.) with a clear sense of community that is supportive to both patients and staff. You will benefit from your training here, but you will soon recognize that your activities also benefit the patients and families you care for as part of the medical center's mission for exemplary patient care, education and research.  MCHS includes:

  • 55 clinic locations across 34 Wisconsin communities

  • 1,200 medical and advance practice providers. Please see the video here to learn about the funding and growth of our system of health care.

  • 10 hospitals, 3 ambulatory surgery centers, and 3 skilled nursing facilities

  • 10 dental clinics

  • 33 clinical laboratories

  • The sixth largest health insurance plan in Wisconsin

  • The largest private medical research institute in Wisconsin with more than 30 PhD/MD scientists, 200 staff, 150 physicians and advanced practice providers engaged in medical research, and approximately 450  active research projects at any one time.

  • Northern Academic Campus for the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

  • 3.5 million patient encounters annually

Marshfield Medical Center (MMC) is the "hub" for our fellowship program.  Located in Marshfield, Wisconsin, over 400 physicians and advance practice providers work with patients across a broad range of primary care and specialty medical departments in our nationally renowned organization.   MMC  includes a 300 bed tertiary care hospital, Level II Trauma Center, a children's hospital designation by the National Association of Children's Hospitals (NACH), certification as a Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center, our Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence (MBSAQIP Accredited Center), ambulatory surgery center, skilled nursing facility, pharmacies, laboratory, large research institution and medical library.  With a referral base of over 2 million people, our fellowship program will provide you with a valuable opportunity to gain broad experience with a variety of adult patients in our Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Department and through Behavioral Health integration in primary care and our specialty medical departments. For psychology trainees who are interested in gaining diverse assessment, consultation, and treatment experience in a multidisciplinary medical setting, we hope that you will strongly consider this fellowship opportunity.

We invite you to review our program and faculty through this webpage.  Our faculty is composed of dedicated professionals who strive for clinical excellence and value teaching as an important part of their career. I trust that you will experience great benefit being immersed in a dynamic of close supervisory relationships within expansive clinical and professional training opportunities.  We welcome you to come see our outstanding facilities and explore the Marshfield community first-hand.
