Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at VA Long Beach Healthcare System is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association. We received full re-accreditation in 2019, as well as specialty accreditation in Clinical Neuropsychology in 2018 and specialty accreditation in Rehabilitation Psychology in 2020.

NOTE: We regret to inform you that changes within our department have resulted in a cessation of recruitment for the 2023-2024 training year. All of our staff remain incredibly passionate about training, and we want to offer the best program possible. We plan to re-open our recruitment for the 2024-2025 training year. We sincerely apologize for the impact that this decision may have on you, and we wish you the best of luck on your professional journey ahead.

Prior to the start of fellowship, a candidate must have obtained a doctorate in Clinical or Counseling Psychology from a graduate program approved by the American Psychological Association (APA), the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS), or the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) at the time the program was completed. The applicant may have a doctoral degree in any area of psychology and have successfully completed a re-specialization program in Clinical or Counseling Psychology that is APA or CPA accredited. The applicant is expected to have completed an internship program accredited by APA or CPA or have completed a VA-sponsored internship. Our Psychology Fellowship Program will offer training in five areas for the 2023-2024 year:

  1. Advanced Mental Health Inter-professional Education
  2. Women’s Mental Health & Trauma
  3. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  4. Rehabilitation Psychology
