Our fellowships give recent MSW graduates further training and experience in the field as they prepare for licensure. Fellows provide direct clinical service with supervision from expert clinicians. They also participate in a core curriculum of seminars and clinical conferences, consult with other professionals, and have the opportunity to engage in community outreach and psychotherapy outcome research.
Fellows receive training in evidence-based psychotherapy interventions, including individual, group, couples, and family therapy. Infused throughout each internship are the following:
Legal and Ethical knowledge
Leadership, supervision, and administrative skills
Telebehavioral intervention competencies
Integrative approaches to psychotherapy
Primary supervision will be provided by licensed clinical social workers with additional supervision opportunities with licensed psychologists. The Fellow will have ample opportunities to supervise social work students and engage in clinical teaching as a part of his or her training plan.
We are interested in applicants who have direct clinical experience using evidence- based interventions with adults in groups and individually.
Who We Are

This is an advanced clinical training program beginning Fall 2020 and ending Fall 2021 with an opportunity to extend for a second year. The mission of this Post-MSW graduate training program is to advance practice competency, professionalism, and leadership in the field of clinical social work and is designed for a clinical social worker with a limited license (LLMSW) in the state of Michigan.
The Psychological Clinic is one of three centers housed at the University of Michigan’s Mary A. Rackham Institute. The Clinic is a large, multidisciplinary outpatient mental health clinic. It focuses on the assessment and treatment of adult individuals and couples from our campus and community.
While our fellowships start as one-year programs, there is a possibility of extension for a second year with mutual consent of the fellow and his or her supervisor(s). Graduation from a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) approved program is required of our applicants. A generous benefits package is given to the successful applicant(s).
A stipend of $29,000 will be provided. Comprehensive health care through the University of Michigan is available. Housing and transportation are not provided. Eligible applicants must have satisfactorily completed accredited Master’s level training in Social Work, provisional
