Postdoctoral Fellowship

Wellington Counseling Group (WCG) is a well-established and thriving multi-specialty group practice, serving clients throughout the lifespan with three locations in and around Chicago. We are accepting applications for one postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Psychology for the 2020-2021 training year - at our Northbrook location.

Ideal candidates are those with experience working with children and adolescents, as this will constitute a sizeable portion of your clientele; however, this does not exclude working with adults (roughly 50% of caseloads). Candidates should also be experienced with and have an interest in testing.

The fellowship begins as a 12-month fellowship position but is designed for those who are seeking a three-year commitment to join our team as a licensed psychologist. The start date is negotiable depending on the circumstances and needs of practice and candidates.

Postdoctoral fellows can expect to receive the following:

  • A vibrant group of professionals, where each clinician is encouraged and supported to develop their own clinical style and interests.
  • A 40-hour workweek with a competitive salary and attractive benefits.
  • A thriving practice established in 2005 with a steady stream of referrals for children, adolescents, and adults.
  • Approximately 6-8 testing cases throughout the year.
  • 1 to 2 hours per week of supervision. Extensive training with a variety of options from any of our five licensed psychologists.
  • Opportunities to develop and facilitate various therapeutic groups.
  • Full use of billing staff and practice management software with onboard scheduling and notes.
  • Access to an affordable range of Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance plans (employee paid)
  • Short- and long-term disability insurance
  • 40-hours per year of paid “sick time.”
  • Malpractice insurance
  • Participation in 401(k) and profit sharing plans, with investment advice provided at no charge.

Candidates must not maintain current employment relationships with other private practices or group practices. WCG requires all employees to sign a non-compete agreement.
