Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Division of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences proudly provides four specialized doctoral level residencies in a dynamic multidisciplinary training environment. The fellowship program aims to successfully develop and prepare psychologists at an advanced level who will truly make a difference in our world. We offer the following postdoctoral residency programs:

  • Advanced Clinical Psychology
  • Clinical Health Psychology (Onco-Psychology Focus)
  • Neurorehabilitation Psychology
  • Clinical Child Psychology

These intensive one-year, full-time residencies led by our faculty experts feature a broad range of interdisciplinary experiences, the chance to apply a variety of theories and techniques, and the opportunity to work with diverse populations.

General prerequisites for our residencies

In order to be considered for any of our postdoctoral residencies, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • A degree or completion of all requirements for a Ph.D. or Psy.D. in clinical or counseling psychology
  • Completion of a one-year, full-time internship or a two-year, part-time internship in clinical or counseling psychology at the doctoral level
  • Eligible for temporary licensure in Kansas before the start of the program (see Kansas statutes regarding license eligibility requirements)

Preparation for the field of psychology

Our residencies are designed to meet the licensure requirements for postdoctoral supervision outlined by the Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board in the State of Kansas. These requirements include 1,800 hours of supervised experience by a Kansas licensed psychologist in a setting that provides clinical psychological services. Residents dedicate at least 900 hours to providing clinical services, and at least one hour of individual supervision is provided per 20 hours of clinical service by the resident.

For detailed information about the requirements for postdoctoral training for Kansas licensure in psychology, visit the Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board website and search for Regulation 102-1-5a under psychology. A full list of regulations for psychologists in Kansas also is available on the board’s website.

The licensure requirements for Kansas should generally meet criteria for licensure in other states. We’ll work with anyone who has special requirements.
