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.
