Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center
Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston, South Carolina, offers two one-year clinical psychology postdoctoral fellowships in the Couples and Family Clinic (CFC). Our post-doctoral fellows will gain expertise in treating families and couples experiencing a wide range of relationship issues, including relationship distress, family dysfunction, and child behavioral problems. Mental health comorbidities (including depression, PTSD, substance use disorders, and personality disorders) and physical health concerns (e.g., chronic pain) are common in this population. Our geographic location also allows our fellows the opportunity to work with couples and families in a wide range of racial, ethnic, educational, and socio-economic backgrounds. Fellows will also gain extensive experience in providing treatment to rural Veterans and families via home-based telemental health.
Fellows will also have the opportunity to broaden their training by choosing two six-month rotations in our VA’s other specialty clinics (Substance Treatment and Recovery clinic; Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Treatment Clinic; Interdisciplinary Pain Team; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy team; and Primary Care Mental Health Integration). As scientist-practitioner trainees, fellows will also complete a research or program development project during their fellowship year.
