Duties of the Fellow:

Fellows practice and receive supervision at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates (HVMA), a non‐profit, multi‐specialty medical group practice that provides health care to almost 740,000 adult and pediatric patients at more than 20 offices in eastern Massachusetts. All fellows provide Behavioral Health care to a caseload of general psychotherapy patients, and will also elect a subspecialty focus in Trauma, Eating Disorders, Addictions, or Women’s Mental Health. Clinical services rendered by fellows during the fellowship might include but are not limited to individual therapy, group therapy, emergent evaluations referred from other departments, and triage phone calls to patients.


Supervision and Seminars:


Fellows are provided supervision in accordance with APPIC and APA guidelines, and the structure of supervision is designed to meet the licensing requirements for the state of Massachusetts. Each fellow will be provided with at least 2.5 hours of regularly scheduled, face-to-face, individual supervision per week.

The fellowship includes three training components: general and subspecialty-area psychotherapy skill development; subspecialty research and program development; and teaching / consultation-liaison experience.

Training in evidenced-based therapeutic modalities including:

Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Goals of the Fellowship:


The principal goal of the Behavioral Health Fellowship is to provide trainees with in-depth didactic and clinical experiences to prepare fellows for practice within the context of an integrative primary and multi‐specialty medical group. Our aim is to train fellows who meet the following program objectives and competencies and, thus, are ready for clinical practice as health service Psychologists.
