Aegis Institute, Inc. provides fellows with a broad range of clinical and managerial opportunities during the placement year provided by seasoned psychologists, doctors and program directors. Upon occasion and with special permission of the Fellowship Director and the Director of Clinical Service elective opportunities may include the following:
Program Development/Program Evaluation:
Opportunities exist for the fellows to participate in the development of clinical programs and the evaluation of existing programs at Aegis.
Specialized Treatment Programs:
Most clinics within the Aegis systems offer specialized groups for homogenous populations served such as recovery skills, relapse prevention, and anger management skills. Opportunities may arise in which new groups may be beneficial to the patients served.
Fellows will be encouraged to meet with the facility manager as well as corporate directors to assess current system-wide practices and offer appropriate interventions and trainings.
Aegis is involved in ongoing research projects. Fellows will be encouraged to join one of the existing projects and make a meaningful contribution. Opportunities may exist for additional research projects in which the fellow may participate.
