This fellowship emphasizes training in behavioral health care across the full spectrum of pediatric patients.

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 fellow 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 consultation - liaison for children with acute and chronic health conditions (e.g., diabetes, cystic fibrosis, chronic pain) hospitalized at Doernbecher Children's Hospital.

ASSESSMENT/NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT-ORIENTED FELLOWSHIP:

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.
