Fellowship Overview: The NCPTSD Fellowship Program provides training in the scientist-practitioner model with a curriculum that features learning experiences that are sequential, graduated in complexity and that facilitate transition to advanced competency and independence. The goal of the Fellowship is for the Fellow to develop excellence as a scientist-practitioner and, consistent with the mission of the VA, engage in both clinical service and research that supports and advances health and mental care of the highest quality to our nations’ Veterans. Fellows will receive advanced clinical training in treatment of PTSD and common comorbid disorders, will participate in PTSD education and dissemination efforts, and will be mentored in research related to improving PTSD assessment, treatment and delivery of services. Potential research areas include PTSD treatment effectiveness trials, innovations in treatment applications, health services research on access and quality of PTSD care, implementation science studies on mechanisms for expanding adoption of best care practices and telemedicine trials testing video, internet, or smart phone-based interventions. Fellows will have also a unique opportunity to gain experience with large-scale dissemination efforts by participating in one or more national dissemination/implementation initiatives.
