This residency emphasizes training in behavioral health care across the full spectrum of pediatric patients. Approximately 50% of the clinical time will be devoted services to children with issues falling under the purview of behavioral pediatrics. Behavioral pediatrics blends behavioral and pediatric sciences to promote health and well-being of children. The OHSU Behavioral Pediatrics Treatment Program emphasizes care to children with: toileting issues (e.g., soiling, bedwetting, delayed toilet training), tic and habit disorders (e.g., Tourette's, trichotillomania, body focused repetitive behaviors), and bedtime and sleep problems (e.g., bedtime resistance, night waking, C-PAP nonadherence).

Additionally, the resident will provide consultation to patients and pediatric residents in general pediatrics clinics, as well as provide supervision to a psychology intern doing the same.

Finally, approximately 50% of the clinical time will involve providing care to children with complex medical conditions. Much of this work will involve consultation - liaison for children with acute and chronic health conditions (e.g., diabetes, cystic fibrosis, chronic pain) hospitalized at Doernbecher Children's Hospital.

NOTE: The assessment/neuropsychological assessment position has already been filled for the 2014-2015 training year

This position emphasizes advanced training in comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological evaluation services of various pediatric populations, focusing on youth with complex special health needs. Most evaluation/neuropsychological assessments of youth with complex medical and/or developmental needs (e.g., traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders, spina bifida, craniofacial disorders) will occur in outpatient contexts; some inpatient evaluative work may also occur (e.g., evaluation of patients hospitalized for seizure evaluations, pre-surgical evaluations for children undergoing brain resections). Evaluations will occur as part of interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary teams as well as independently/psychology only-evaluations. The successful candidate may also negotiate to have a portion of his/her time devoted to outpatient treatment of youth with a variety of emotional/behavioral conditions. Opportunities for inpatient consultation also exist.


This primarily clinical position focuses on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with an emphasis on interdisciplinary differential diagnostic assessment. The CDRC Autism Program is one of 17 Autism Treatment Network (ATN) in North America, is designated as a Center of Excellence for the state of Washington, and serves as Oregon's only university-based program for children with ASD. In accordance with the postdoctoral resident's interests and program needs, up to one-third clinical time may be spent in other assessment or treatment activities within the CDRC and Division of Psychology (e.g., neuropsychological assessment, neuro-oncology consultation, inpatient consultation, parent training, or cognitive/behavioral treatment). Experience in supervision of interns and practicum trainees is emphasized through mentorship and tiered supervision. The postdoctoral resident will participate in ongoing research activities and possible grant development, in addition to developing his/her own research project(s).
