The primary goal of our postdoctoral fellowship training program is to
train psychologists and pediatricians to assume leadership roles in research, clinical care, and teaching concerning the management of pediatric chronic conditions,
especially in the promotion of self-management and treatment adherence in
children, adolescents, and their families. The Center’s fellowship program was
established to meet the critical need for specialized training related to
research and practice in self-management among children, adolescents, and young
adults and their families.
We are seeking applicants who have a strong interest in research, clinical care and program development related to the management of pediatric chronic illness, with an emphasis on self-management and treatment adherence. Applicants will have a PhD in clinical psychology or an MD/DO and fellowship training in a medical subspecialty.
