Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

About Us

The psychology postdoctoral fellowship program is housed within the UNM Center for Development and Disability (CDD), which is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities in Research Education and Training (UCEDDs) in the country. The CDD is a division within the Department of Pediatrics, at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, and the UNM School of Medicine. We are physically located at 2300 Menaul Blvd NE, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is in close proximity to the UNM Health Sciences Center and University of New Mexico Main Campuses. Although the CDD is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, most programs at the CDD serve communities across the entire state. New Mexico has a unique and diverse cultural and geographic composition. It is a majority minority state with an underserved, rural, and culturally rich population. Travel within the state of New Mexico to provide clinical services and training is an expectation of the fellowship program.

The training faculty of the CDD is currently comprised of psychologists with a variety of clinical, educational, and research experiences. The majority of the supervising psychologists have faculty appointments within the UNM School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics and secondary appointments in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
