Supervision

Each Postdoctoral Psychology Fellow receives a minimum of two hours of formal, scheduled, individual supervision by a Licensed Psychologist/FSUCOM Faculty Member. Supervisors are assigned to each rotation based on their expertise within that specialty domain and patient population. All supervisors follow an “open door” policy and are readily available for additional and information supervision session as needed. In fact, the structure and content of supervision in Primary Care often mirrors the pace and structure of the Primary Care setting. Supervision frequently occurs at times outside of, and in addition to, the scheduled supervision blocks. Such supervision is flexible and often-time occurs in real-time. For example, supervisory consultations may include questions regarding diagnostic clarification, treatment planning, care coordination, appropriate triage, and practice management. Furthermore, the content of supervision in primary care is not exclusively about the treatment of patients. Working in primary care adds layers of complexity to interprofessional practice, ethics, and practice management – all of which are addressed during the supervision process. Fellows sign a supervision agreement with the Director of Clinical Training at the start of the Fellowship.
