Post-Doctoral Fellowship & Permanent Employment in Clinical Psychology

The University of Montana-Missoula, Department of Psychology

Deer Lodge Medical Center (DLMC), Deer Lodge, MT, & Western MT Area Health Education Center

The University of Montana Department of Psychology and Deer Lodge Medical Center, Deer Lodge, Montana seek applicants who want to be on the forefront of integrating behavioral health into multidisciplinary primary care—the wave of the future of mental health practice (e.g., Bray, 2010). This full time, permanent position will include post-doctoral supervision prior to licensure. The successful applicant will be part of an interdisciplinary team at DLMC, a Critical Access Hospital and Rural Health Clinic (RHC), providing mental health treatment, consultation, and assessment in collaboration with the RHC primary care providers and a post-graduate Social Worker using the patient centered medical home model.

Majestic, snowcapped peaks encircle the sprawling Deer Lodge valley. Today, this friendly community remains loyal to its 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 psychiatric hospital is a 15 minute drive to Warm Springs.

Applicants who have graduated with a PhD, or PsyD from an APA-accredited program are eligible to apply for this position. Applicants must have successfully completed their dissertation or professional paper by time of employment, which can begin immediately. The successful applicant will be working toward Montana licensure as a psychologist and will be required to obtain licensure within eighteen months. After licensure, this employee will be eligible to apply for student loan repayment through the National Health Service Corps; recipients could receive $40,000 in loan repayment for two years of full-time employment.

The team will consist of a post-doctoral Psychology Resident and a pre-licensure Masters in Social Work, who will work in concert with RHC primary care providers to develop and implement an integrated treatment program that includes behavioral health. Via distance learning and some in-person meetings, members will receive consultation and supervision from faculty and clinical staff at The University of Montana-Missoula, along with on-site supervision. The successful applicant will be someone able to function with some autonomy while utilizing and growing from the intensive tele-supervision and tele-consultation provided by The UM team. As employees of Deer Lodge Medical Center, the integrated team members will augment and extend mental health services available in the community and 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. We seek highly motivated, confident applicants.
