The Post-doctoral Residency Program at Community Health Center Inc. (CHC) is one of two APA accredited programs in a community health center. Entering its tenth year as a residency program, CHC offers a top-notch level of training within an integrated care setting that is pivotal for any clinician due to its breadth and diversity of experiences. The opportunities to tailor one’s training experience to focus on specific areas of interest as well as the emphases placed on fostering leadership, quality improvement, and supervisory skills are unique aspects that set the residency program apart from others.
CHC provides the opportunity to work within a fast-paced environment, where residents are able to function independently as providers while also experiencing a supportive training structure. The residency program sites are positioned at fixed, mobile, and school-based locations in both rural and urban cities across the state of Connecticut, and residents provide services to underserved populations, key populations, and individuals across the lifespan.
CHC residents practice and train within multiple clinic locations positioned across the state, where they are able to collaborate within an extensive integrated network of providers and a residency cohort of eight colleagues. Our residency program prepares trainees to be independent, ethical, resilient, and well-trained clinicians who are equipped to work in any clinical setting. As such, applicants from diverse identities and experiences are encouraged to apply.
