The fellow is evaluated four times per year using a competency-based form on which each supervisor rates level of competence achieved in the areas of General Professional Competence, Assessment Competence, Competence in Psychotherapeutic Interventions, and Scholarly and Research Competencies.

Each area is rated on a scale from “Needs Remedial Work” to “Ready for Autonomous Practice.”  If the fellow has a “Remedial” rating in an area, the supervisor and fellow produce written goals to the situation. 

The fellow receives a copy of the Due Process and Grievance Procedures documents at orientation, with discussion of the procedures for notification of program concerns about the fellow, and the appeals process.
