Position Description
Colorado State University invites applications for a one year, full-time, 12-month position as Post-Masterís Fellow in Counseling or Social Work with the CSU Health Network. The Post-Masterís Fellowship requires graduation from an accredited masters program in Counseling or Social Work and completion of an internship or field placement at a university counseling service or equivalent clinical experience. The program is designed to meet partial requirements for licensure in the state of Colorado. The Fellowship begins August 1, 2014 and concludes July 31, 2015. Fellows are currently paid $29,356 plus a benefits package.

The Post-Masterís Fellowship at the CSU Health Network is designed to prepare individuals for a staff position in a university counseling service, with particular emphasis on social workers or counselors wishing to work at universities which have integrated their mental health and medical services. The training of clinically skilled, ethical, self-aware, and culturally competent mental health professionals is central to our mission. The fellowship focuses on consolidation of traditional clinical skills in the areas of individual and group therapy, crisis intervention (both daytime and after-hours), triage, and initial consultations (intake). A second focus is on the development of cultural competence through self-examination and participation in university-based outreach and prevention services for both the general student population and underrepresented groups on campus. The CSU Health Network has a strong commitment to multiculturalism and has solid working relationships with the various Diversity Programs and Services Offices on campus.

Minimum Qualifications
1.Completion of a Masterís degree between May 1, 2013 and August 25, 2014 from an accredited program in either Counseling or Social Work.

Applicants who are able to negotiate an earlier completion of their internship in this way will be given full consideration for the Post-Masterís Fellowship.

ēApplicants who are scheduled to complete their Internship/Field Placement in August are still eligible for the Post-Masterís Fellowship, provided they can attend the majority of the orientation training period (August 1-22, 2014) and make up the remainder of their Internship/Field Placement hours following completion of the orientation. Such applicants should include an anticipated schedule of Internship/Field Placement completion in their verification letter (see #5 under Application Procedures). Leave time for completion of Internship/Field Placement will then be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
