Welcome! Applicants interested in providing collaborative care, conducting research, supervising medical family therapy trainees, and teaching internal medicine residents are encouraged to apply for this Medical Family Therapy doctoral fellowship in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The internship provides clinical experience and training for a future behavioral medicine faculty member. Applicants will provide brief therapy and brief psychosocial interventions for patients and their families in primary care, hospital, and oncology settings, will supervise masters level family therapy students, will teach medical residents about psychosocial components of patient care, will teach a masters-level medical family therapy course, and will develop and conduct research projects. The fellow will gain experience collaborating with residents, physicians, medical students, social workers, pharmacists, nutritionists and diabetes educators. The fellowship looks a bit different for each person, since the time allocation for each training activity is dependent on the experiences and goals of each fellow.

Clinical supervision will be provided by an AAMFT Approved Supervisor. The internship provides a unique opportunity to develop a skillset that is applicable to a career in behavioral medicine and/or academic family therapy. The fellow functions as a full-time behavioral medicine clinician-educator for the duration of the 12 month internship.
