The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry within the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions offers a two year postdoctoral fellowship designed to provide supervised experiences in Child-Clinical and Pediatric Psychology.
During the first year of the fellowship, the clinical focus will primarily include assessment, consultation and treatment services provided to clinically impaired youth who are served by our inpatient, outpatient and day hospital programs. The full range of psychopathology is represented within these programs; however, the outpatient programs will emphasize patients seen through our specialty clinics. Within this context, clinical supervision is offered by nationally recognized experts in the following disorders: Tics and Tourette syndrome, Depression, ADHD, OCD and other Anxiety Disorders.
During the second year of the training program, the clinical focus will include patients that are seen through our Pediatric Psychology Service; in particular, the fellow will participate within multidisciplinary clinics that involve patients seen through Otolaryngology, Urology, GI, Burn and Dermatology. Didactic training includes the weekly Grand Rounds and research conferences offered by the Department of Psychiatry; in addition, there will be weekly divisional research and clinical seminars provided.
In conjunction, training opportunities are available through other departments within Johns Hopkins University or at allied institutions. Postdoctoral fellows will also participate in divisional research opportunities involving developmental psychopathology and pediatric psychology. US News and World Report has rated Johns Hopkins Hospital as the #1 hospital for 21 consecutive years; in conjunction, the Department of Psychiatry has also been rated as the #1 program in the country.
The minimum stipend for an entry level position is $36,996 plus health insurance (the exact stipend may be adjusted for cost of living increases). The fellow is afforded 2 weeks vacation; additional time is provided for sick leave and to attend at least one professional conference.
Interested applicants must complete all requirements for a doctorate in clinical pediatric or school psychology before July 1, 2013. Ideally, the start date will be July 1, 2013; however, adjustment in start date can be considered on a case-by-case basis. Review of applications will begin January 4, 2013 and continue until the positions are filled. Send vita and three letters of recommendation t
