Volume 46 Number 5 page 13-13

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is seeking applicants for its academic year 2011-2012 Interprofessional Fellowship Program in Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Recovery-Oriented Services. The program will start in late August or early September and end in June 2012.

The purpose of the fellowship is to develop future mental health leaders with vision, knowledge, and commitment to transforming mental health care systems in the 21st century by emphasizing functional capability, rehabilitation, and recovery.

Fellows will work with veterans with serious mental illness and receive training in delivering a range of evidence-based practices. Veterans may also have comorbid diagnoses, such as PTSD, substance use disorders, depression, and anxiety.

Psychiatry fellows must be U.S. citizens and graduates of professionally accredited academic and training programs. Stipends are competitive and based on location. Psychiatry fellows are also eligible for health and life insurance benefits, can earn annual and sick leave, and are entitled to federal holidays.

The fellowship program is offered at six VA sites. Applications will be accepted and reviewed at each site until all positions are filled. Application requirements and specifications may differ across sites.
