Institute of Living/Hartford Healthcare

The Department of Psychology at the Institute of Living/Hartford Hospital is pleased to accept applications for one, one-year postdoctoral residency positions in clinical psychology with an emphasis in health psychology, to begin in fall of 2024. The residency follows the scientist-informed model of training and is an area of emphasis of the one-year APA-accredited postdoctoral residency program at the Institute of Living. The intent of the training program is to further the resident’s growth as a clinical psychologist and to develop advanced competency within the area of clinical health psychology. While the residency will emphasize evidence-based practices, the resident will receive training from various theoretical models, providing a unique perspective on the integration of mind and body problems.

The primary aim of the residency is to provide experiences in clinical assessment and intervention to adult patients experiencing a wide range of medical and psychological problems. The position is outpatient-based and includes consultation and diagnostic interviewing, pre-surgical psychological evaluations, short-term psychotherapy and behavioral interventions, and group therapy. Areas of clinical focus for the 2024-2025 year include Men’s Health and Headache.  The resident is provided ample didactic experiences and opportunities for teaching and supervision. There is also a requirement for a research project to be completed during the course of the year.

Applicants must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree, including the completion of an APA-accredited predoctoral internship in clinical psychology or clinical health psychology. Preference is given to candidates with prior training and experience in health psychology. Please apply by sending your CV, cover letter, three reference letters and a writing sample to Mara.Demaio@hhchealth.org AND Aieyat.Zalzala@hhchealth.org
