Postdocotral Fellowships in Pediatric Behavioral Health
Center for Pediatric Behavioral Health (Pediatric Institute), Ceveland Clinic Children's
Cleveland Clinic Children’s invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pediatric Behavioral Health beginning September 2, 2014. Cleveland Clinic is consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top hospitals in America, and the Children’s Hospital has been rated among the nations' finest. The fellowship is designed to prepare a doctoral level psychologist for professional functioning in an academic medical center or outpatient pediatric setting. The fellowship offers clinical experiences in pediatric psychology (e.g., adjustment to chronic illnesses, cancer, organ transplant, functional gastrointestinal disorders, recurrent headaches, enuresis and urinary incontinence, etc.) as well as clinical child psychology (e.g., emotional difficulties, behavioral conduct concerns, and opportunities in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, autism and pervasive developmental disorders). Supervised training is provided in the areas of psychological assessment and testing, outpatient treatment, and hospital consultation/liaison. Specialty rotations may be available in certain areas (i.e., Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Program). In addition to clinical service, the fellow has the opportunity to provide umbrella supervision to graduate students, participate in teaching activities through the Division of Pediatrics, and there may be opportunities for research according to the fellow’s interests. A variety of didactic opportunities are available, as well.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. or Psy.D. from an APA-accredited psychology doctoral program and have completed an APA-approved internship. Please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vita and three letters of reference sent directly from writers to Kate Eshleman, Psy.D., via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any other inquiries may be directed to this email, as well. Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
