I'm on internship now at a VA and I really love the work. However, I know postdoc is our last year of training and testing the waters. I'm trying to compare working for the VA, Kaiser, and state hospitals (CA) as a clinical psychologist. This will help me narrow down the post docs I apply to. I've already done practicum in a county hospital and community mental health setting so I know what I like and don't like about those types of settings. I really love inpatient unit work, groups, and neuro testing. I'm not trained in neuropsychology but I love testing so some work would be great. I prefer to have multiple responsibilities to having the same sort of work day over and over again. I will probably be in CA for the next few years but I have the freedom to move about the state. CA is too expensive to live in so I eventually want to move. I have a lot $$ in loans so I'm thinking a postdoc and future job that qualifies for loan repayment programs is the best option even if Kaiser pays more. I also haven't heard the best about Kaiser (from the news) but I don't personally know anyone who works there so I don't know what its really like to work there. Any advice on Kaiser/CA State hospital systems would be greatly appreciated. Are the benefits similar, what is the work environment like, etc? Ive been searching this site for similar threads as well but haven't quite found the advice I'm looking for.
