• 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 graduate programs in business, education, and creative writing, for a total enrollment of approximately 4,000 students.  Over 40% of Hamline’s undergraduate population is comprised of first-generation college students, and 28% are students of color and indigenous students.

    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, two physician assistants, 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 one hour of individual supervision and one hour of group case consultation weekly.

    As a liberal arts institution that values civic engagement, Hamline University embraces a diversity of viewpoints and experiences among its students, faculty and alumni. In the wake of the Memorial Day officer-involved killing of George Floyd, Pipers donated, volunteered, marched, and protested. Some have also taken the lead in the media.
