Berkeley’s post-MSW fellowship in Clinical Social Work program is a postgraduate training program committed to providing comprehensive clinical experience and professional development opportunities in the field of college mental health. The program aims to meet the needs of pre-licensed postgraduate clinical social workers who have a Master of Social Work and are working to consolidate clinical skills and professional identity while accruing post-graduate hours on the path to licensure.
The fellowship is comprised of a 1st and a 2nd-year program. At the time of application and acceptance, fellows are accepted into the 1st year program with a 1 year employment contract. The expectation is that 1st year fellows will progress to the 2nd year, will be eligible to do so if they meet satisfactory performance standards during their 1st year, and will be offered another 1 year employment contract for the 2nd year.
Eliminating health disparities and ensuring that all students have equal access to high-quality and culturally competent health care and services is vital to the mission of University Health Services. We are committed to recruiting fellowship candidates from diverse backgrounds in support of training social workers who reflect the diversity of the communities they will serve, both while at Berkeley, and in their future careers.
Applicants must have completed a Master of Social Work from a program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), by July following the application deadline.
Unless an applicant is from Mexico or Canada, our program does not currently meet the criteria needed to allow us to sponsor visas for international applicants.
