Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VAMC
Post Doctoral Residency
The Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center has two Psychology Postdoctoral Residents through the Interprofessional Mental Health Education initiative. As of October 2018, the residency was accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association until 2028. Residents can expect to spend approximately 50% of their time devoted to the direct provision of clinical services. The two post-doctoral residents will have overlapping curriculum but also distinct training foci in Outpatient Mental Health Teams (PTSD, Addiction, Chronic Pain) or Patient-Aligned Care Teams (Primary Care-Mental Health Integration, Home-Based Primary Care). In addition, the CMCVAMC was granted funding for a third postdoctoral residency position for this training year; this resident will have a training focus in Health Psychology (see separate brochure). In order to apply to our residency program, please submit all the required application elements via the APPA CAS system at https://appicpostdoc.liaisoncas.com/applicant-ux/#/login by the due date, January 5th, 2019.
According to VA policy, post-doctoral funding can be provided only to applicants who are U.S. citizens, who have received a doctorate from an APA or CPA-accredited graduate program in clinical, counseling, or combined psychology, or PCSAS accredited Clinical Science Program, and who have completed an APA or CPA accredited or VA sponsored internship. (Please see link at the bottom of the page for additional eligibility requirements). As with the internship, all things being equal, consideration is given to applicants who identify themselves as veterans, have VA practicum or internship experience, or demonstrate an interest in a VA career; identify themselves as members of historically underrepresented groups on the basis of racial or ethnic status, as representing diversity on the basis of sexual orientation, or as representing diversity on the basis of disability status. This may be indicated in the cover letter.
