How to Apply

Applications are now open for the 2021-2022 Post-Doctoral Residency Program. CHC reviews all completed applications on a rolling basis.

  • Applicants must provide name and contact information for their APA/CPA accredited doctoral program.
  • We do not require that applicants completed an APA/CPA accredited doctoral internship, although the internship experience should meet APPIC standards.
  • All requirements for the doctoral degree must be completed before starting the postdoctoral training program. Documentation must be provided from academic institution and verified by CHC staff.
  • After written material is submitted and reviewed, candidates are selected and invited to interview.
  • Second language proficiency is preferred, including Spanish, Polish, Arabic, and others, but not required.

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.
