New England Image


VA Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research Education and Treatment: West Haven, CT Site

The VA Office of Academic Affiliations is sponsoring a VA Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research and Treatment at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System (VACHS), West Haven campus. The primary goal of the VA Advanced Fellowship Program is to train psychologists to become exceptional clinical researchers in high priority areas of VA mental health. The Fellowship follows a scientist-practitioner model and is designed to offer clinical research training and advanced clinical training in an interdisciplinary setting. Fellows are individually mentored in clinical research and clinical service delivery by VA/Yale faculty. Fellows work with individual research mentors to develop a training plan that supports the Fellow’s professional goals. Fellows work with at least two licensed clinical psychologist supervisors each year to support development of advanced skills in service delivery. Each year, the fellowship recruits two psychologists for a two-year Fellowship, one in SUD/dual diagnosis at the MIRECC and one in PTSD at the NC-PTSD.

Applications closed for FY24.
