Applications are currently being accepted for the SC MIRECC Advanced Fellowship Program located in Little Rock, Arkansas. This fellowship is a 2-year research training program (75% time devoted to research and 25% to advanced clinical training). The SC MIRECC’s mission is to promote equity in engagement, access, and quality of mental healthcare for Veterans facing barriers to care, especially rural Veterans. This two-year applied science fellowship trains associated health professionals (e.g., psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, pharmacists, nurses) for future leadership roles in research, education and clinical services. Applied clinical research and education activities make up 75% of fellowship training, and formal clinical training rotations make up 25% of the fellowship. Core research areas include:

- Evidence-based treatment for persons with substance use disorders

- Technology in mental health treatment

- Evidence-based practices in clinical settings

- Implementation science

- Primary care and mental health integration

- Qualitative methods

- Rural populations access to treatment

- Rural/urban disparities in care

- Telemedicine

- Suicide prevention

- PTSD and moral injury

By the end of the fellowship program, Fellows should be ready to pursue entry-level leadership roles, which integrate state-of-the-art research, education, and clinical approaches to mental health in the VA healthcare system and other settings. Fellows pursuing academic clinical-research careers should also be ready to submit applications for career development awards (such as VA Career Development Awards or NIH K-Awards) toward the end of their fellowship.
