Our selection criteria are based on a goodness-of-fit model. The ideal candidate has demonstrated strengths in clinical work, research productivity, academic preparation, and personal characteristics related to the profession. Furthermore, we are looking for fellows whose professional goals are consistent with the training and experiences we offer to ensure that the post-doctoral experience is productive. Our goal is to select fellows who have the potential to develop as leaders in clinical services, research, and education. Each application is initially reviewed for eligibility after all materials are received. A selection committee reviews all written materials and provides telephone or in-person interviews to top candidates. Final rankings, and offers, are determined by consensus of the committee based on written and interview information. In the absence of uniform application and notification dates for postdoctoral programs, we understand that applicants are often faced with having to make difficult decisions between programs with differing timelines. With this in mind, we make every effort to keep our review process timely and to keep candidates well informed of their status.
