Since 1811, McLean Hospital has been a world leader in the treatment of mental illness and chemical dependency, research into the cause of mental illness and the training of generations of mental health care providers. McLean's multidisciplinary programs treat a broad range of psychiatric illnesses across the full continuum of care. The Simches Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at McLean Hospital offers a two-year Post-Baccalaureate Clinical (PBC) Fellowship Program for college graduates interested in pursuing a career in mental health. This guided, entry-level professional experience is shaped by the four pillars of McLean Hospital's mission: excellence in clinical care, ground breaking state-of-the-art scientific investigation, training next generation of mental health professionals, and serving the institution and our communities. The PBC Fellowship Program includes a two-year, full-time paid position as a community residence counselor. Fellows will be considered for one of two tracks, either an intensive experience in a single program or eight months in each of three different participating clinical programs, including those that specialize in the general assessment and treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder, borderline personality disorder and trauma, and anxiety and mood disorders. The eight accepted fellows attend two weeks of orientation with topics covering the different levels of care in a mental health environment, understanding how to work with a multidisciplinary team, essentials of group therapy, crisis management, professional boundaries and ethics, and basics of cognitive behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, exposure response prevention therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy. Once placed with a program, fellows participate in training and supervision along with other program colleagues. In addition, fellows join in a monthly professional development and education seminar consisting of clinical supervision and training tailored to the year in the fellowship. Learning in year one emphasizes understanding the "here and now" of the clinical service environment. Fellows learn from world-renowned clinicians about different therapy modalities, therapeutic strategies, and diagnoses (depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, attention deficit disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder). There are also seminars conducted by McLean staff on topics such as child development, ethics and boundaries, success as a young professional, as well as quality improvement research being conducted in various settings. Learning in year two focuses on careers and professional opportunities in a broader context such as the various clinical degrees, law and mental health professions, health research, public health and policy, and technology and psychiatry. Fellows also receive guidance on career options and support around graduate school applications, including earned recommendations. Finally, fellows provide service to McLean and/or the community at large via a partnership with the Office of Public Affairs.
