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 walk-in services, intake, individual and group psychotherapy, behavioral health interventions and crisis intervention to students attending the University of Colorado Boulder. 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.


Training for Social Work Fellows includes regular seminars on specific mental health topics, weekly multidisciplinary case consultation, 90 minutes of weekly supervision with an LCSW and secondary supervision as needed related to clinical areas of focus. All Fellows also attend CAPS staff meetings and trainings. Additionally, Fellows attend a weekly group training program featuring the following components:

  • A interactive, didatic seminar
  • An experiential training group, in which trainees focus on the here-and-now experience and learn through participation.

Start Date, Stipend and Benefits

The state date for these positions is August 3, 2020 and will end two years after the start date. Positions are a 40-hour/week, two-year commitment. Annual salary is $31,000. Benefits include vacation time, sick leave, paid university holidays and health insurance.
