    Cincinnati Children’s has one of the nation’s largest pediatric / child psychology postdoctoral fellowship training programs. Each year, we admit seven to eight new fellows in specialized areas of training. Fellowships last for one to two years.

    Our fellowship training philosophy is based on the scientist-practitioner model: we provide fellows with advanced skills in the practice of psychology and in the integration of research and clinical services in a pediatric medical center. Following the completion of their training, our fellows are prepared to function independently at the assistant professor level within a medical school or other professional setting. Most of our fellows are licensed psychologists by the end of their fellowships, and many go on to become leaders in their respective fields.

    Lori Crosby is a faculty member of the Center for Innovation in Chronic Disease Care at Cincinnati Children's. The center was created to improve the outcomes for children and adolescents with chronic illnesses by accelerating the development of effective care delivery methods. With this goal in mind, we bring together scientists and physicians from eight academic divisions and six disciplines to foster change and facilitate experimentation.

    Our aim is to identify and understand the barriers to optimal clinical outcomes and experiences among adolescents with asthma. To this end, we have created the Asthma Innovation Lab to use new knowledge to improve clinical outcomes and experiences. As part of this objective, we are developing improved and innovative care methods, and we will apply successful new methods to other chronic patient populations.
