About us

The focus of Geisinger's Clinical Psychology and Behavioral Medicine Fellowship is to develop the professional and leadership skills psychologists need in their many roles within an academic medical setting. Upon completion of this program, fellows are ready to hit the ground running in their first professional positions. Each fellow takes ownership of a clinical specialty area (tracks are listed separately in the Universal Psychology Postdoctoral Directory), which involves a combination of direct clinical care, representing behavioral medicine on a multispecialty team and at interdisciplinary meetings, and leading efforts in clinical research or program development. Additional clinical and professional activities may be tailored to individual fellows' based on training needs and interests.
As this is a pivotal training year, all fellows participate in professional development seminars and case conferences and receive at least two hours of individual supervision per week. Fellows will also have the opportunity to teach psychiatry residents and practice supervision skills with doctoral psychology interns.
