Post-Doctoral Psychology Residency

Confluence Health would like to welcome post-doctoral residents! 

Thank you for your interest in our program! The link below contains a link to the Post-Doctoral Residency program and answers many questions you may have. We are currently hiring six post-doctoral residents for the 2016-2017 training year. This program was developed in an effort to improve our ability to recruit qualified psychologists to Confluence Health. Thus, our ultimate goal is to see successful graduates stay on with Confluence Health permanently. Thus, Dr. Julie Rickard has created this post-doctoral training program so residents can receive their supervised hours, learn unique models of care and assist with career planning into the future. The sites open to receiving residents this year include Omak/Tonasket, Moses Lake, and CWH/MU1 to start. The program is developed around using the Primary Care Integrated Behavioral Medicine Model and the Consultation & Liaison Model, which integrates behaviorists within medical settings. Moving forward it is expected the list of resident positions will grow as the program is developed and/or post-doctoral residents take permanent positions within CH. Lastly, this program will not only provide valuable training, but it will improve access for our patients.
