Research Program Evaluation Training About Us

Improving Mental Health Care in Safety Net Medical Settings Fellowship

Fellowship Goal

This NIMH-funded (T-32) two-year postdoctoral research training program aims to launch fellows "ahead of the curve" as they undertake high impact research in safety net settings and prepare for careers as NIH principal investigators.


Our interdisciplinary program is embedded in an academic-public sector partnership that has flourished for several decades.  Each year, the fellowship offers specific opportunities reflecting current faculty interests:

We welcome applications aimed at these opportunities, and we also welcome applications focused on other safety net issues.

 Faculty Mentors

Fellows will spend their two years working with expert behavioral health services faculty on safety net setting projects including:

  • Developing new research areas and collaborations
  • Developing and submitting grant proposals and publications - independently as part of faculty research
  • Collaborating with safety net administrators and clinicians on quality improvement projects
  • Providing supervised evidence based treatments in safety net clinics  1-2 days per week (clinically trained fellows)
