Positions are generally full-time with benefits and require a doctoral degree in clinical, school, or counseling psychology, as well as completion of an APA accredited internship. Our trainees have gone on to faculty positions, hospital/medical center jobs, and independent/community practices. Each fall/winter, the USF Rothman Center invites applications. The appointment is for one year, but most fellows choose to renew and remain for two years.
