In addition to their supervised clinical training experiences, fellows are required to participate in various seminars, discussions, and case presentations with other trainees and Health Psychology faculty throughout the year.

These scheduled didactics include:

  • Breakfast Club
    Breakfast Club is a biweekly opportunity for collaboration across healthcare providers in various disciplines. This is a time set aside to learn about various services across the hospital or health psychology populations from psychologists who are not part of our service. This is an opportunity to transition from more passive didactic lectures to collaboration with the providers we often work with on a daily basis.
  • Case Collective
    Case Collective is a bimonthly series during which staff and fellows share ideas and experiences related to the unique complexities of working in an inpatient hospital environment. Staff and trainees present case examples of clinical practice related to the assigned topic. Examples of topics include cases that exemplify why you enjoy being an inpatient provider, times where you have provided co-treatment to a patient along with other hospital-based services such as therapies, working with diverse patients, etc.
  • Professional Development
    Professional Development is a bimonthly meeting with a focus on bridging the gap between the role of trainee and early career psychologist. A staff member will guide a discussion on relevant topics including licensure, exams, job search, etc. These meetings are held in both group and individual format.
  • Other Hospital-wide and Multidisciplinary Team Didactics
    Fellows are encouraged to attend any Grand Rounds or webinars of interest presented by various departments at UWHC and AFCH.  Fellows are also invited to attend other relevant lectures or presentations provided across the university campus.
  • Community Presentations
    Each fellow is required to provide a minimum of one presentation to community groups or other health care groups within the institution.
