The Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Utah School of Medicine is seeking a rehabilitation psychologist for a full-time faculty position. Rank will be dependent upon the selected applicant’s qualifications. Duties will include maintaining a clinical practice involving evaluation and treatment services to rehabilitation patients on an inpatient and outpatient basis. We anticipate at least half of clinical time will take place on an inpatient basis with the percentage of services provided outpatient negotiable. Our providers work with individuals living with a variety of conditions and undergoing associated rehabilitation activities, including TBI, stroke, SCI, amputation, MS, and orthopedic or other pain concerns. We further provide evaluation and treatment services pre and post-bariatric surgery, post severe burns, and undergoing cardiac rehabilitation. Further opportunities for outpatient practice development around these conditions and other behavioral health or rehabilitation related conditions exist. As a faculty member, the individual would be expected to support the leadership, service, educational, and research goals of the University of Utah’s School of Medicine. Education requirements include completion of a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA-accredited graduate school, completion of a one-year internship at an APA-accredited program, and completion of a one or two-year postdoctoral fellowship in rehabilitation or health psychology. Attainment of board certification within five years of hire is strongly encouraged. Applicants already board-certified, or eligible to apply for board certification, in health or rehabilitation psychology are preferred.
