Number of Positions:            3

Contract Dates:        08-15-2017 to 05-15-2018

Possible Renewal:     Yes

Job Description:

The Behavioral Health & Wellness Clinic is a community-based psychology training clinic. We treat patients of all ages from the surrounding communities. We are the only psychology training clinic in the state of Tennessee that is contracted with the State of Tennessee to accept Medicaid patients. Even though we are a small clinic in terms of clinicians and patients, our operations are complex. Due to our accreditation and contractual obligations, our policies and procedures may change in what seems like a rapid manner. The work required of the Tuition Scholarship candidate is administrative and supportive in nature. Tuition scholarship program pays the tuition for graduate students who are entering their first semester of their graduate program in exchange for 8 hours of work per week (120 hours/semester). The tuition scholarship lasts for 2 academic years: fall and spring, but not summer. Scholars are required to maintain minimum grades in order to maintain the scholarship.

Brief description of the duties that will be performed in the Behavioral Health & Wellness Clinic (BHWC).  Duties include:

  • answering the phone and taking messages
  • making copies
  • maintaining a neat and orderly environment in the office, the waiting rooms, and therapy rooms
  • following HIPAA procedures for conducting business in the clinic
  • scanning and shredding documents for our Electronic Health Record
  • receiving money in the clinic
  • this is not an exhaustive list, but it is inclusive

 Job Qualifications:

 Of particular interest to me are skills related to using Outlook, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher and SPSS. You do not have to have to be an “expert” in all of these, but I do need you to be willing to learn.  Attention to detail; ability to multitask; excellent communication skills; ability to follow through on incomplete tasks; conscientiousness;  neatness in presentation and work habits; ability to work accurately under pressure from competing demands; prioritizing of tasks and efficiency in execution of activities; job sharing; and an ability to work independently without constant supervision are necessary skills. The bulk of the work that needs to be done is the “behind the scenes” work that propels a training clinic. Your first opportunity to support your assertion that you pay attention to details follows: In your cover letter please use the word squirrel in a sentence. I can teach you about HIPAA, privacy, confidentiality, the connection between ethical and legal practice, working with insurance companies and working with accrediting bodies. These can be helpful skills if you ever want to go into private practice or administration of any type. Additional training opportunities may be available depending on the candidate’s performance, experience, and interest.

 

Job Requirements:

 Eligibility requirements for the tuition scholarship program:  the student cannot have had a G.A. either prior or concurrently, and s/he must be beginning their first semester of a new graduate program in the Fall of 2017.  Social Work students who are enrolled in the Advanced Standing program are not eligible because their first semester is the Summer term.
