The Baylor Scott & White Medical Psychology Consultants are recruiting a one-year, full-time Postdoctoral Fellow for our growing, interdisciplinary service. The fellow will receive advanced, focused, and in-depth training opportunities encompassing assessment, diagnostic evaluations, research, and evidenced-based clinical practice. Based in an urban Level I trauma center, our Postdoctoral Fellowship Program will allow for training in a multidisciplinary setting with exposure to a diverse patient population.
The fellow will provide clinical services in response to consults from medical teams including trauma and critical care, orthopedics, palliative care, transplant, internal medicine, and oncology. Patients present with a variety of medical and psychiatric diagnoses, most prominently adjustment to illness or injury, difficulty with treatment adherence, coping with prolonged hospitalization, and exacerbation of premorbid psychiatric disorders. Additionally, there are opportunities for psychotherapy and/or pre-surgical psychological evaluations (e.g., bariatric surgery, solid organ transplant) in the outpatient setting. Patients may include mature adolescents, adults, elderly patients, and families of patients. The fellow also has the opportunity to engage in program development, supervision, and/or scholarly activity during the training year.
