Pediatric Behavioral Health Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC (posted 11/14/16, deadline 12/19/16)

The Behavioral Sciences Division at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is pleased to announce the availability of two postdoctoral psychology fellowship positions in Pediatric Behavioral Health starting in September 2017.
 
The Pediatric Behavioral Health postdoctoral fellowship program at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is designed to prepare individuals who will be uniquely suited to work at the interface of pediatrics, psychology, and behavioral medicine. The training program offers broad based technical, clinical and management skills beyond those obtained in traditional models. The program provides the postdoctoral training experiences that are necessary to meet the needed clinical hours and supervision requirements for licensure. The postdoctoral fellow will gain extensive experience in pediatric behavioral medicine through inpatient and outpatient consultations and interventions.
 
We have two tracks available for post doctoral training. The tracks will differ in the fellow’s primary year long rotation. The two tracks available are our Pediatric Behavioral Health Consultation and Liaison Service and Developmental Medicine. Please see description of primary rotations below.
 
Pediatric Behavioral Health Consultation and Liaison Service: This position offers supervised clinical training on the inpatient Pediatric Behavioral Health Consultation and Liaison Service. This will be a primary rotation throughout the clinical year. This portion of the program will include exposure to a range of childhood psychopathology as it presents in acute, post acute and chronic phases at the interface of physical and behavioral aspects of disease. The fellow will also gain an understanding of the behavioral health issues, impacted by and impacting on, medically ill children and adolescents in a large tertiary care pediatric hospital.
 
Developmental Medicine: This position offers supervised clinical training in Developmental Medicine. This will be a primary rotation throughout the clinical year. Developmental Medicine and the Child Development Unit (CDU) are comprised of psychologists and physicians with advanced training in the evaluation of childhood development and related medical, social, and behavioral concerns. The primary role of the psychologist is to evaluate the question as to whether or not a child has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Psychologists complete comprehensive evaluations that consist of review of records obtained from teachers, early intervention therapists, and other providers; clinical interview with the child’s parents or primary caregivers; assessment with standardized developmental, cognitive, and behavioral assessments such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS). Psychologists use the information obtained from the evaluation to inform diagnosis and conceptualization of the child’s most pressing needs. Most important, findings are used to establish treatment recommendations, and our providers and staff assist parents and other caregivers in connecting with the right level of intervention for their children.
 
Both tracks will include rotations in our outpatient Pediatric Behavioral Health and Wellness Service. This portion of the program will include three rotations with specific areas of focus and one additional rotation of choice dependent on the individual fellow’s goals and interests. The three areas of focus are assessment/intervention, pain management and behavioral care in chronic disease. Training choices for Assessment/Intervention include Pulmonary/Sleep, Center for Independence, Neurology/Movement Disorders and Neonatal Developmental Follow Up Clinic. Training choices for pain management include Chronic Pain Clinic or Neurology/Headache Clinic. Training choices for behavioral care in chronic disease include Pulmonary/Cystic Fibrosis, Endocrinology, Hematology/Oncology/BMT, and Plastic Surgery-Cleft Craniofacial Center/ Vascular Anomalies. Additional training opportunities are available with our community programs through Family Care Connections.
 
Our program is primarily a clinical training program however faculty has access to existing databases and participate in ongoing research—numerous research opportunities exist. Fellows are encouraged to develop individual projects or case presentations.
 
Supervision is provided by the staff within the behavioral health program. Fellows will be provided with at least two hours of individual supervision per week, as well as direct observation and consultation during regularly scheduled rotations. Additional consultation is readily available based upon the needs of the fellow. Group supervision experiences are also provided to further develop clinical analysis skills and professional development.  Individualized goals will be established and reviewed on a quarterly basis.
