The Guidance Center offers two postdoctoral fellowship opportunities to work with children and adolescents who have co-morbid medical and mental health diagnoses.

1. TGC Postdoctoral Fellowship in Child Clinical Psychology

Emphasis in specialty mental health for children and adolescents with co-morbid medical and mental health diagnoses

The full-time, one-year fellowship in child clinical psychology provides a particular focus on providing a comprehensive range of treatment services to children, adolescents, and families who are medically fragile and also meet criteria for specialty mental health services.  The fellow is expected to attend to the emotional, cognitive, and developmental needs of children with co-morbid medical and mental health diagnoses who are seen in an outpatient clinic or where necessary to overcome treatment barriers for vulnerable families. Cases will be referred from local hospitals and specialty medical clinics.
