The Clinical Psychology Training Consortium in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (DPHB) at the Alpert medical School of Brown University has three types of postdoctoral fellowships. Investigator-funded fellowships, APA approved fellowships, and Institutional (T32) and Individual (F32) NIH-funded research fellowships.
Investigator-funded and APA approved fellowships are funded by hospital revenue and individual faculty research grants.
Institutional (T32) and Individual (F32) NIH-funded research fellowships, described in this section, are either funded by a T32 Institutional Research Service Awards or an F32 Individual National Research Service Awards.
There are currently four NIH-supported institutional training grants associated with the DPHB:
- Research Training Program in Child and Adolescent Biobehavioral HIV
- Research Training Program in Treatment Research
- Research Training in Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine
There are also two NIH-supported institutional training grants associated with the Center for Alcohol and Addictions Studies:
Postdoctoral training at Brown allows the fellow to have as much autonomy as possible. The exact nature of training (the mixture of didactic experiences, exposure to ongoing faculty research, direct research involvement of the fellows, etc.) is decided on an individual basis by each of the faculty mentors and fellows.
The NIH Institutional Research Training Committee is composed of all the Directors and Associate Directors of the various T32 grants in the DPHB. The Clinical Psychology Training Consortium is centrally controlled through a committee, which is within the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (DPHB) of the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The Training Committee, under the leadership of the Director, Dr. Elizabeth McQuaid, is the central coordinating body of the NIH Research Training Program’s policies and goals. Brown postdoctoral fellowship training is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).
