    Health Psychology Program
    Training Program

    California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) is one of the largest private, not-for-profit, academic medical centers in Northern California and is a Sutter Health affiliate. As part of the Department of Psychiatry, the Health Psychology Program collaborates with medical teams to provide a wide range of psychological services to patients and families coping with the effects of medical illness.

    Training & Education

    We offer post-doctoral fellowship training in health psychology to develop advanced clinical competence in all areas of professional practice. Training includes weekly seminars and grand rounds, participation in multidisciplinary team meetings, and individual and group supervisions. Additional training is available through the psychiatry residency and psychology internship programs.


    As a member of interdisciplinary teams, our staff works closely with various departments, including oncology, cardiology and neurogastroenterology. Fellows are afforded the unique experience of working primarily with a high-functioning patient population.

    A large proportion of time is spent conducting evaluations and delivering consultation services to patients, spouses and family members. Fellows facilitate weekly support groups, provide educational lectures for patients and staff, and contribute to program development per individual interest.

    Position Requirements

    Fellows commit to a minimum of 32 hours per week, for one year, beginning in September. The positions are currently unfunded, although there is opportunity to develop a fee-for-service private practice.


    Completion of PhD or PsyD from APA-approved program and pre-doctoral internship. Prior experience and training in health psychology is preferred.

    Application Procedure

    We request a cover letter, your CV, and three letters of recommendation. E-mail is preferred. Applications received before January 15th will be given priority. For questions, please contact Dr. Bornstein.
