Post-Internship Opportunities

A number of post-doctoral positions at the University of Washington are available every year. Psychology residents who become productively involved with research and who exhibit superior clinical performance may compete successfully for these positions. UW-affiliated post-doctoral fellowships in psychology are typically available through the Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Rehabilitation Medicine, Anesthesiology, Psychology, School of Nursing, School of Social Work, and School of Dentistry. The Psychology Internship does not administer these post-doctoral fellowships. Prospective psychology residents who would like to discuss post-doctoral training possibilities should contact the Psychology Internship Office, Alternatively, some residents opt to pursue postdoctoral positions at other Universities, entry-level faculty positions, or other positions, such as Research Scientists. Listed in the following Table is a summary of positions held by recent graduates of the internship training program.
