• Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Counseling Psychology

    About Hamline 

    Founded in 1854, Hamline is Minnesota's first university, and was among the first co-educational institutions in the nation.  Hamline remains rooted in the values and traditions of the United Methodist Church, which include a commitment to liberal education, civic engagement, social justice, and inclusive leadership and service.  Located in Saint Paul, Minnesota, the Hamline campus is within close proximity of many urban amenities via light-rail public transit, including the downtown districts of both Minneapolis and St. Paul.  In addition to undergraduate programs, Hamline also has a law school and graduate programs in business, education, and creative writing, for a total enrollment of over 5,000 students.  Approximately one-third of Hamline’s undergraduate population is comprised of first-generation college students and 25% are students of color.

    Program Philosophy

    The Counseling & Health Services (C&HS) office is an integrated medical and mental health clinic, guided by an ethic of holistic wellness for clients and staff alike. The purpose of the post-doctoral fellowship is to provide varied learning opportunities within a supportive work environment, and thereby facilitate a smooth transition from trainee to autonomous professional.  Upon completion, the post-doctoral counselor will be fully prepared to obtain licensure as a psychologist in the state of Minnesota.  

    Training Opportunities

    The post-doctoral fellowship affords opportunities to work closely with a multi-disciplinary team of 4 psychologists, a physician assistant, a nurse practitioner, an RN, a medical assistant, a part-time family practice physician, and a part-time psychiatrist.  Counseling services are delivered primarily in an individual format, but the post-doctoral counselor will also provide group counseling, couples counseling, crisis intervention, outreach, and consultation to members of the university community.  Training for the fellowship includes 90 minutes of weekly individual supervision, and one hour of weekly group case consultation.
