Many students know their career path from the day they enter college, if not before.
But for those who find themselves pondering their next steps as graduation approaches, McLean Hospital now offers an opportunity to road test some of their ideas.
The Post-Baccalaureate Child and Adolescent Clinical Fellowship Program (PBac), directed by Fairlee C. Fabrett, PhD, is a two-year commitment for college graduates interested in pursuing a career in mental health, whether in psychology, psychiatry, nursing, or social work.
Unlike many other post-bacc programs, fellows are hired to work full time.
Approximately 100 fellows have passed through the program since it launched in 2019, including 57 individuals who are currently enrolled.
Fellows are placed in child and adolescent programs across McLean campuses in Belmont, Arlington, Middleborough, and Cambridge, as well as at the McLean-Franciscan campus in Brighton.
