Title: Fellow, Non-ACGME - Rehabilitation Psychology Fellowship in Post-COVID Conditions


Position Details


Position Description

The University of Washington (UW) Department of Rehabilitation Medicine invites applications for its Rehabilitation Psychology Postdoctoral Clinical and Research Fellowship. This is a full-time fellowship (60% clinical / 40% research) emphasizing Rehabilitation Psychology at the UW Harborview Medical Center Post-COVID-19 Rehabilitation and Recovery Clinic (PCRRC). The desired start date is August 2024. While this is designed to be a two-year fellowship, the initial appointment will be for one year, with reappointment for a second year based on satisfactory progress in the first year.

The fellowship is funded by an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Long COVID Grant awarded to UW PCRRC titled “Improving Access to Multidisciplinary Care for Patients with Long COVID”. The three aims of the grant project are as follows:

1.       Improve clinical care delivery and expand access to the UW PCRRC for patients in Washington and Alaska.

2.       Engage underserved communities to improve culturally responsive education on COVID-19 and post COVID conditions.

3.       Improve access to post-COVID care in the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI) region by providing ongoing education and support to community primary care physicians, mental health providers, and physical therapists with a focus on providers in under-resourced areas across the WWAMI region.

The fellow will develop and hone expertise in assessing and managing/treating post-COVID symptoms such as dyspnea, chronic fatigue and post-exertional malaise, dysautonomia, cognitive problems, and anxiety and depression symptoms at the interdisciplinary PCRRC (https://www.uwmedicine.org/specialties/post-covid-rehabilitation). The PCRRC is an interprofessional team-based group of psychologists, physicians, physical and occupational therapists, as well as a vocational counselor, nurse case manager, patient navigator, research scientist, and global health fellow in Primary Care. In line with Aim 1, the fellow will spend approximately 60% of their time providing supervised individual and group therapy to diverse patients in Washington and Alaska with post-COVID conditions in-person and via telemedicine (HIPAA-compliant Zoom). The group therapy is an 8-session symptom self-management intervention delivered via telemedicine. The fellow will also have the opportunity to engage in vertical supervision of predoctoral psychology interns who may elect to co-facilitate the self-management group. In line with Aim 3, the fellow will provide behavioral health webinars and lectures for the ongoing education and support to primary care physicians, mental health providers, and physical therapists in the WWAMI region.

The fellow will spend approximately 40% of their time collaborating on quantitative and qualitative assessment of program implementation outcomes guided by the Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance (RE-AIM) framework and the Practical Implementation Sustainability Model (PRISM). No prior research experience in implementation science is required. The fellow will have the opportunity to contribute to manuscript preparation and to propose and conduct independent research using project data.

The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in professional development programs via the UW Department of Rehabilitation Medicine’s Grand Rounds series, Springboard to Success Research Program series, and Early Career Mentoring Program series.

Compensation

The fellowship provides a full-time annual base salary of $68,460 ($5,705/month) and package that includes paid holidays, health insurance, and vacation and sick leave.
