2024-2025 Fellowship Positions

Social Work Post-Masters Fellowships are for candidates who have completed a Master’s Degree in Social Work and who need supervised clinical experience to obtain licensure. The positions provide direct clinical services including screening services, intake, individual and group psychotherapy, behavioral health interventions, telehealth services and crisis intervention to students attending the University of Colorado Boulder. The opportunity for a hybrid work schedule is available. Positions are a 40-hour/week, two year commitment.

The ideal candidate is a recent MSW graduate who has an educational background in evidenced based psychotherapy practices and whose goal is to acquire necessary clinical/supervision hours for licensure. The candidate should also have relevant and significant clinical experience providing direct psychotherapy services, including crisis intervention and group therapy. CAPS provides psychotherapy services in a brief therapy model, thus the ideal candidate must also have interest in utilizing short term interventions. CAPS is a multidisciplinary setting, thus Fellows must have interest in working on a multidisciplinary team, be familiar with electronic medical records, and be comfortable with managing a busy and demanding clinical schedule.
