The O’Grady Residency in Psychology provides broad training in clinical psychology; however, interns focus their training through participation in one of two tracks:
Behavioral Medicine Track
Interns in the behavioral medicine track provide inpatient and outpatient behavioral health assessment and treatment to child and adolescent patients and their families. Interns complete several rotations, gaining experience treating patients with chronic illnesses, adjustment disorders, behavioral problems, and anxiety / depression.
Interns will be assigned to 2 of the 4 following six-month rotations:
- Inpatient Medical Consultation-Liaison
- Sleep Clinic
- Chronic Pain Clinic
- Gastroenterology Clinic
Additionally, interns participate in 2 of the following four-month rotations:
- Epilepsy Clinic
- Headache Center (biofeedback)
Finally, all Behavioral Medicine interns participate in 1 four-month assessment rotation in either inpatient psychiatry or neuropsychology. They also see year-long outpatient therapy cases and participate in concurrent outpatient groups for families with children who have diabetes.
Child Clinical Track
Interns in the child clinical track gain year-long training and experience in conducting empirically-based assessment and family-focused services to improve the functioning of children and adolescents with ADHD (both with and without a broad range of co-morbid conditions) through the Center for ADHD.
In addition, Child Clinical interns participate in several six-month minor rotations including the following:
- In-school community consultation for children with autism
- Parent-child interaction therapy and trauma focused cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Sleep Clinic (Behavioral Medicine mini-rotation)
