Site Name: Fargo VA Health Care System
A subgroup of applicants are offered interviews on select Mondays in January (1/3/2022, 1/10/2022, and 1/24/2022) to allow an opportunity to learn more about our training site. We had typically held in-person interviews to allow applicants an opportunity to visit our site and get a sense of our welcoming atmosphere; although interviewing options for the 2022-2023 cohort will be completed virtually. That being said, we strongly encourage questions about the Fargo area, which truly is a great place to live and work!
We pride ourselves on our commitment to training, our ability to flexibly tailor each intern’s unique training experience, and our passion for teaching and supervision. Our program is extremely collaborative in nature, and involves frequent consultation among interns and psychology staff. Doctoral trainees at the Fargo VA are able to choose their own rotation placements from among five major rotations and additional minor rotations to create an expansive and dynamic training experience tailored specifically to their unique training goals and interests. Interns are also able to obtain exceptional training in our well established telehealth program, including group therapy offerings via clinical video telehealth to home. As one of the largest medical centers in the Fargo-Moorhead area, our hospital is large enough that each intern has opportunities to work with diverse departments, yet small enough that our interns report feeling like they are part of each interdisciplinary team with whom they consult. Interns are able to obtain a breadth of clinical skills, and quality training in rural mental health care. Assessment, consultation, diversity and evidenced based care are also emphasized, offering a very dynamic training year.
