The Hopebridge Fieldwork Experience
Behavior Analyst Fellowship Program
Becoming a BCBA is not easy, but Hopebridge offers a helping hand (a group of hands, actually!) to help budding behavior analysts on this path. Our Behavior Analyst Fellowship (BAF) program provides opportunities to gain free restricted and unrestricted hours, plus free access to BACB exam study materials. Benefits for BAF students also include multi-level, multidimensional support from peers, multiple BCBAs and company leadership.
Clinical Fellow Opportunities
Hopebridge also offers fellow positions and clinical rotations for RBTs and aspiring speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists. Our in-center roles offer support for this transition between graduating from the university program and becoming an independent provider. These fieldwork opportunities provide direct and indirect observation from our knowledgeable, experienced mentors, in addition to an unmatched interdisciplinary autism therapy experience.
Structured Supervision Hours
Supervision hours can be difficult to come by at any level within a graduate program. Hopebridge makes it easier by offering structured, on-the-job, supervised training. This type of individual and group supervision always comes at no cost to our employees and does not require a contract tying employees to post-certification work—though we hope they enjoy it enough to choose to grow with us!
The Hopebridge Clinical Experience
Utilized as a way to collaborate, inspire progress and learn from challenging cases, Hopebridge hosts weekly Grand Rounds. During these virtual sessions, an interdisciplinary clinical review team of clinicians at all company levels across the country – in addition to external experts and consultants – are able to look at the bigger picture to treat the whole child, while extending their education in the process.
We know how important – and expensive – it is for our team members to broaden their knowledge and stay up to date on the industry’s latest developments. To make continuing education more accessible, one of the big perks of working at Hopebridge is the annual stipend for CEUs. Plus, Hopebridge is an official Authorized Continuing Education (ACE) Provider, enabling the therapy network to provide in-house learning opportunities for team members.
RBT Development Program
Want to level up within your own role? Hopebridge offers an RBT Development Program to help our direct therapists receive mentorship and expand their knowledge, experiences and opportunities to meet the criteria for career advancement within the centers.
