Dr. Jill Grant
I received my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Marshall University in 1984. Afterwards, I worked as a masters level psychologist with the NC Dept. of Corrections from 1985 to 1990.
I began my doctoral studies in 1990 at the Virginia Consortium Program in Psychology, and completed my pre-doctoral internship at a program jointly sponsored by the University of NC School of Medicine and the U.S. Dept. of Justice--Bureau of Prisons. My internship concentrations were in forensic psychology, psychological assessment, and behavioral medicine. I received my Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree in 1994. I have been licensed as a doctoral-level psychologist in NC since 1995.
I was employed with the Bureau of Prisons for 21 years, during which time I also conducted disability evaluations for the State of NC on a part-time basis and taught masters level courses as an adjunct professor at UNC. I retained my adjunct professor status and was involved in training with our psychiatric fellowship program and with our pre-doctoral internship program at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, NC. On occasion, I still give talks to interns and fellows at FMC Butner and Central Regional Hospital. I retired from the Bureau of Prisons in 2015 and began working part-time in a contractual capacity with the NC Dept. of Public Safety, Division of Prisons, and later with UNC Hospitals, engaging in crisis and assessment services. In addition to contractual work with those two agencies, I also conduct criminal and civil forensic evaluations (e.g., risk assessments, guardianship evaluations, pretrial evaluations) for federal and state court, as well as attorneys in the Triangle area.
