| Gannett Health Services (GHS) is a fully accredited ambulatory care center with more than 200 employees, committed to providing integrated and culturally sensitive medical, mental health, health promotion and public health services for the diverse Cornell community. Gannett is nationally recognized for innovation and leadership in the development of integrated, cost-effective, and community-based services and campus health initiatives.|
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) within Gannett Health Services is a highly utilized fast-paced mental health service with primary responsibility for meeting the mental health needs of the Cornell students on the Ithaca, NY, campus. CAPS as part of an integrated health service takes a community-based approach to care. There are two post-doctoral residency positions available for fall, 2017. The residency provides a concentrated training experience where residents (1) develop advanced clinical and case management skills in working with young adults, (2) collaborate as part of multidisciplinary teams including psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers when responding to challenging acute cases, and (3) develop expertise in responding to the many clinical and systemic challenges facing university mental health services. Residents will conduct and receive training in mental health triage, evaluation and assessments, individual, and group psychotherapy, community based comprehensive outreach interventions, crisis intervention, and consultation with faculty, staff, and parents regarding student mental health issues. Training experiences include weekly individual supervision (2+ hours), a one-hour weekly seminar on topics ranging from psychopharmacology to culturally competent practice, and two hours weekly clinical case conference/group supervision. Other offerings include weekly health service professional development seminars, weekly administrative meetings and other speaker series on the Cornell campus. Residents will have the opportunity to work in one or more clinical areas: General Clinical Services, Eating Disorder Treatment, or Community-Based Services with particular emphasis given in the latter to the provision of support and outreach to under-served communities.
