About the Program
The Albany Medical Center Department of Psychiatry’s Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology is designed to prepare fellows to function as capable psychologists assuming multiple roles within the Department of Psychiatry and other clinical and academic settings.
Fellows are called upon to fill multiple scholarly, training, and academic roles. They work closely with, and serve as, junior faculty for trainees within associated programs, including the Albany Medical Center Psychiatry Residency Training Program and the Albany Psychology Internship Consortium.
The fellowship is a full time, year-long program requiring a 40-hour work week. There are full-time positions for an adult track and child and adolescent track. The program accepts five to six fellows per year, depending on funding. The training year begins on or shortly after Sept. 1.
