As a Psychology Resident, the successful applicant will be hired as a full-time contracted employee of Community Health Center, Inc for the postdoctoral year. In addition to the above information, we will require our standard employment application be completed and a contract signed. Residents will be introduced to some of the benefits offered to full time employees by our Human Resources department, including paid time off, medical insurance, and due process/grievance procedures.
The Postdoctoral Psychology Residency program provides comprehensive training in the provision of psychological care to uninsured and underserved populations under the CHC patient-centered medical home model, with a focus on positive client outcomes and building healthy communities. We are committed to serving diverse and special populations, including Spanish speaking clients, LGBTQI, and all individuals across the life span. Through a HRSA grant, we have the opportunity to train up to eight postdoctoral residents each year.
In 2017, CHC created the Postdoctoral Multicultural Committee (PDMC) to strengthen recruitment, retention, and training efforts for staff and residents of diverse backgrounds, as this is a value of the agency. This committee hopes to serve as a case study for implementing recruitment and retention efforts for psychologists of diverse backgrounds and offer a model for cultural competency training for a new generation of psychologists. We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.
