About the Program
Our program offers a one-year structured fellowship training in Primary Care Clinical Health Psychology. Our program began in 1987 and has consistently trained psychologists to assume leadership positions in primary care, medical education, and health psychology positions.
Commitment to Diversity
The program has a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion in recruitment, curriculum, and clinical services. We seek to create an inclusive, welcoming, and diverse learning and professional environment for all postdoctoral fellows, staff, and faculty, and is committed to the recruitment and retention of members of underrepresented groups. Ascension is an equal opportunity employer.
We have traditionally been part of the Michigan Center for Advanced Psychology Training (MICAPT). Given the continued collaborative relationship with the MICAPT program, the American Psychological Association (APA) Commission on Accreditation has agreed to allow Ascension Genesys Hospital to be listed as accredited throughout the periodic review process. A site visit is anticipated in 2019.
What does APA accreditation mean to you? The advantages to you are many. You know that you are applying to a training program that meets APA's high standards for excellence. After you graduate, those who evaluate your credentials for professional entry into restricted clinical practice settings such as hospitals, medical centers, and provider panels, as well as licensure boards, professional societies, courts, and other situations where expertise is demanded, will also know immediately that your capstone training was of the highest quality.
