My partner is applying for a job in Vancouver. If I do postdoc in Canada would the hours count toward licensure in the US? I know this may vary by state but I was hoping to find some sort of general guidelines or hear some anecdotes.

Also, any suggestions for post-docs in or around Vancouver would be much appreciated! I'm on internship at a university counseling center and have VA experience. Hoping to start my career in a UCC and transition into private practice.

Many thanks!

Good question. You'll need to check the licensure requirements state by state.

Obviously, one place to look for a postdoc would be UBC's counseling center. You might also check out Vancouver Coastal Health.

As above, it is state (or province) dependent.

It can be difficult for someone who trained in the US to go to Canada and get licensed, so it is a bidirectional PITA.
