Predoctoral Internship Program: 

The flagship of the Division of Psychology's training program is our predoctoral internship, which is accredited by the American Psychological Association. The internship program provides training in developmental disabilities and pediatric psychology. In collaboration with the Oregon Institute on Disability and Development, a University Center for Excellence in Disability, the internship offers training that emphasizes evaluation, management, and ongoing services to youth with complex developmental, medical, and/or behavioral needs within a hospital context.

More information about our Internship Program is available online, but please contact us with specific questions.

Postdoctoral Fellowship Program: 

The Division of Psychology typically sponsors one to two post-doctoral fellowships each training year. Emphasis is on training within a specialty area within developmental disabilities and/or pediatric psychology. Fellowships are typically offered for one year, with the possibility of extending for a second year. 

More information about our fellowship program is available online, but please contact us with any specific questions you may have.

Practicum Training Program: 

We offer training opportunities to graduate students earning doctoral degrees in clinical psychology from local universities. The goal of this program is to offer specific training opportunities in the assessment/management of youth with complex medical/ developmental conditions within an outpatient, tertiary hospital.
