Post-Doctoral Fellowship & Full-Time Employment in Clinical Psychology
The University of Montana Department of Psychology and Deer Lodge Medical Center, Deer Lodge, Montana invites applicants for a full time, permanent position which will include one year of post-doctoral supervision. The successful applicant will be a participant in a program to place a team of full-time mental health professionals at DLMC, a Critical Access Hospital serving rural communities, by providing mental health assessment and treatment in collaboration with primary care providers in the patient centered medical home.
Majestic, snowcapped peaks encircle the sprawling Deer Lodge valley where one of Montana’s first permanent settlements took root. Today, this friendly community remains loyal to its pioneer roots and welcomes curious visitors who come from every corner of the world to explore its surprising faces. Home of the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site and the Old Montana Prison Museum, Deer Lodge boasts significant cultural attractions, small-town hospitality, and an impressive array of nearby recreational opportunities. Montana’s state prison is located in Deer Lodge and the state hospital is a 15 minute drive to Warm Springs.
Applicants who have graduated with a PhD from an APA-accredited program in Clinical Psychology are eligible to apply for this position which begins between July 1 and September 1 depending on internship schedule. The successful applicant will be working toward Montana licensure as a psychologist and will be required to obtain licensure within eighteen months of starting the position. After licensure, this employee will be eligible to apply for student loan repayment through the National Health Service Corps; recipients could receive up to $40,000 in loan repayment after two years of full-time employment at Deer Lodge Medical Center.
Each team will consist of a post-doctoral Psychology Resident and a pre-licensure Masters in Social Work. Via telemedicine and distance education, members will receive consultation and supervision from faculty and clinical staff at The University of Montana-Missoula. As employees of Deer Lodge Medical Center, the team members will augment and extend mental health services available in the community, and will assist in providing continuity of care and wrap-around services to patients seen at the hospital. This is a full time, permanent position with a pre-licensure salary of $40,000, with full benefits including health insurance.
