Clinical Psychology Fellowship

The Duke Clinical Psychology Fellowship Program is a post-doctoral training program in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center.

This 2-year full-time program is designed to help advance the professional development and clinical training goals for clinical psychologists (a) trained in a clinical scientist or scientist-practitioner model and (b) interested in pursuing a career as a clinician-educator in an academic medical center. Fellows conduct psychosocial assessments and provide contemporary cognitive behavioral therapies using empirically supported treatments and principles of change to a wide range of patients within clinics at Duke University Medical Center.

Programmatic didactics and professional development occur across 5 core training areas:

(1) Ethics and professionalism 
(2) Diversity and inclusion 
(3) Networking and professional development 
(4) Preparing for a future of integrated behavioral care 
(5) Preparing for success as care delivery models change from volume-based to value-based in the coming years

In addition, Fellows complete a clinical quality project aligned with their professional development goals to help prepare them for success in value-based care delivery models.

The program began in 2016 under the direction of Dr. Zach Rosenthal with two Fellows, Drs. Colleen Cowperthwait and Justine Grosso. Current clinical supervisors are Drs. Rachel Feuer, Jeff Sapyta, and Noga Zerubavel. Individuals interested in learning more about the program should contact Dr. Rosenthal (

After a preliminary review of all applicants, individuals will be invited to interview in-person in January, with offers made by early February. The anticipated start date for this 2-year training program is August 1, 2018.
