The Guidance Center offers a postdoctoral fellowship opportunity to work with children and adolescents who have co-morbid medical and mental health diagnoses.
TGC Miller Children and Women’s Hospital Join Pediatric Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship
The fellowship is a collaboration between The Guidance Center (TGC) and Miller Children’s Hospital. The full-time, one-year fellowship in pediatric psychology provides a particular focus on 1) consultation/liaison with the Pediatric medical team (pediatric ward and pediatric ICU), chaplains, and social work team and 2) mental health assessment and supportive treatment to patients and families who are in medical crises. In addition, the fellow is expected to attend to the emotional, cognitive, and developmental needs of medically fragile children who are seen in the TGC outpatient clinic or where necessary to overcome treatment barriers for vulnerable families. Cases seen in the outpatient clinic are referred directly via hospital discharges. Advanced training is provided in the understanding of major pediatric illnesses and required medical regimens.
