The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program (EHVP) is currently seeking candidates for our two-year postdoctoral psychology fellowship. Postdoctoral fellows will have the opportunity to obtain outstanding training in the practice of clinical psychology under the direction of Dr. Barbara O. Rothbaum and Dr. Sheila A.M. Rauch, with in-depth training in providing evidence-based treatment for the invisible wounds of war (including PTSD, MST, TBI, and depression, among others), serving our nation’s veteran population, and contributing to the advancement of knowledge in evidence-based care. Postdoctoral fellows train within an interdisciplinary team in traditional outpatient and an innovative intensive outpatient settings, with opportunities to train in individual, group, and family modalities.
Although the training program is primarily focused on advanced clinical training, opportunities for involvement in research are available, based on level of research experience and interests. Research interests among EHVP faculty include, but are not limited to: PTSD, anxiety, psychotherapy outcomes, military sexual trauma (MST), exposure therapy, virtual reality-based exposure therapies, adjunctive pharmacological therapies, neurobiological predictors/outcomes of PTSD treatments, and early intervention/prevention of PTSD. Participation in research may provide opportunities to gain a breadth of practice at affiliated sites in the region, such as Grady Memorial Hospital.
