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.
