Human Sexuality Fellowship


  • Provide the most up-to-date training in the assessment and treatment of a variety of sexual problems
  • Build competency in the promotion of sexual health
  • Promote growth and skills in research design, analysis, report writing, and presentation

Fellows are expected to:

  • Treat a variety of sexual problems under supervision
  • Specialize in the following clinical specialties:
    • sexual and relationship dysfunction
    • intimacy dysfunction
    • compulsive sexual behavior
    • sexual offenses
    • sexual abuse
    • child and adolescent sexual problems
    • conflict or confusion regarding sexual orientation
    • paraphilia
    • gender dysphoria
    • HIV
  • Complete a research project that depends on the applicant’s research interests and qualifications


The staff at the Program in Human Sexuality utilize both individual and group supervision in the training of postdoctoral fellows, who provide 26 hours of direct patient care per week. Fellows receive one hour of individual supervision per week. In addition, they receive two hours per month of individual supervision with the training director. Fellows also receive up to 3.5 hours of group supervision for various groups (e.g., transgender health services, compulsive sexual behavior, relational and sex therapy, and sex offender services) and additional training opportunities. Finally, as part of the 10% research requirement of the fellowship, fellows meet regularly with an assigned research supervisor and complete their research project during the time of their fellowship.

Fellows are evaluated semi-annually. These evaluations provide fellows the opportunity to both give and receive feedback about how the fellowship is going. Evaluations are conducted in a face-to-face meeting with the fellow's primary supervisor. Fellows are informed about due process procedures in the event of a grievance.
