Caring for yoU and Baby (CUB) Clinic Manager

Job description

The University of Denver (DU) is a top-ranked university in a thriving city at the base of the Rocky Mountains. The ethnic and cultural diversity of the Denver Metro area includes a Latino/Hispanic population that represents about a third of the population, a strong and visible African American community, a diverse array of Southeast Asian refugees and immigrants, and a similarly diverse population of refugees and immigrants from East Africa. The Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP) at DU was created in 1976 to house one of the first Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) programs in the country, under the Vail training model (practitioner-scholar). The PsyD program has been continuously accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) since 1979. In addition to its broad and general education in Clinical Psychology, PsyD program also provides specialty training in a variety of socially responsive service areas, including in Latinx Psychology, Military Psychology, Health/Oncology Psychology, Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health, and Substance Use Disorders. Furthermore, GSPP provides four specialized masters programs: Sport Coaching, Sport and Performance Psychology, Forensic Psychology, and International Disaster Psychology, as well as online certificates and continuing education. The School also has a partially affiliated, APA-accredited internship consortium and several in-house and satellite psychology training clinics that serve Denver and the surrounding communities. As a professional school, GSPP promotes and utilizes high-level pedagogy that integrates applied practice, theory, research, and scholarship. Our strategic plan Innovation and Impact: Psychology for a Complex World outlines how we are building on our academic strengths in order to expand our community reach.

As part of our training model, GSPP offers a broad range of confidential and evidence-based mental health care to the Denver community through multiple specialized clinics. Our Professional Psychology Clinic (PPC) has provided low-cost, high-quality psychological services to the Denver community for over 30 years and houses a number of specialty clinics to work with specific populations.

Position Summary

The Clinic Manager primarily supports GSPP's Caring for yoU and Baby (CUB) clinic by providing administrative and operational support as well as providing on-site coverage and clinical supervision. Currently, the CUB Clinic is housed within the Professional Psychology Clinic on DU's campus, and on-site coverage is needed there. The CUB Clinic is also considering expansion to a satellite clinic space. In this case, the CUB Clinic Manager would project manage the development, opening, and operation of that space and then provide on-site coverage there.

This is a half-time, hourly, benefited position. While some work can be done remotely, the position also requires being on-site on DU's campus and following appropriate protocols related to COVID. The work schedule will include regularly scheduled evening hours (to be determined) as well as daytime hours in order to provide coverage as needed. This position is funded for one year. If funding is not secured, the position will not continue. The CUB Clinic has a strong track record of successfully securing funding. If funding allows, the position will continue and may expand to full-time.

This person will provide student therapists and student clinic assistants with support around both logistical and clinical issues that arise, including emergency psychiatric holds and other clinic emergencies. Operational support will include: growing the clinic following DU protocols for purchasing, technology, and for creating an inclusive environment for clients and student therapists; setting up processes and procedures in line with GSPP policies; hiring and training clinic assistants and managing their schedules and timecards; collaborating with support personnel on any technology or building issues; managing ongoing financial duties including setting up rent payments; managing client billing and tracking and reporting on client data; onboarding and paying clinical supervisors, managing technical difficulties around telehealth and other clinic technology, etc. As needed and desired, the individual may provide clinical support, for example by screening incoming referrals, assigning cases, providing clinical supervision, and providing direct clinical services. The CUB Clinic Manager reports directly to Dr. Tracy Vozar, Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of the Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Specialty, with a dotted line to GSPP's Director of Clinical Operations.
