The Behavioral Sciences Division at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is offering one postdoctoral fellowship position in Developmental Medicine for 2018 - 2019. Training begins September 2018. The fellowship is for a one-year period and is fulltime. Benefits include:
The Developmental track will consist of a primary rotation in Developmental Medicine and the Child Development Unit (CDU), which is comprised of psychologists, developmental and neurodevelopmental pediatricians.
The primary role of the psychology fellow will be to conduct diagnostic evaluation of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in young children, consisting of record review, clinical interview, and assessment with standardized measures such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – Second Edition (ADOS-2). The fellow will use the information obtained from the evaluation to inform diagnosis, case conceptualization and treatment recommendations. The fellow also will assist parents or other caregivers in connecting with the right level of intervention for their child.
In addition to the primary rotation, the postdoctoral fellowship in Developmental Medicine includes minor rotations within the outpatient Pediatric Behavioral Health and Wellness Service of CHP. This portion of the program will include two to four minor rotations over the course of the fellowship year. Potential rotations may include:
Candidates must have completed all requirements for their doctoral degree prior to beginning the program and must be a graduate from an APA accredited doctoral program. APA accredited or APPIC member internship program training is preferred. It is essential that applicants have prior experience in working with children with ASD and/or children with other developmental disabilities. Prior experience with the ADOS-2 is not required and, as part of the training experience, the fellow can expect to establish clinical competence administering Modules T, 1, 2, and 3.
