Mayo Clinic: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Child/Pediatric Psychology

The Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, Mayo Clinic Rochester, offers a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Child/Pediatric Psychology. The fellowship will prepare doctoral level clinical or counseling psychologists from APA-accredited graduate programs and internships for professional careers in academic health science centers and children's hospitals. Fellows will participate in the diverse practice of clinical child/pediatric psychology in the rich clinical, research, and educational environment of the Mayo Clinic.

Those interested in child anxiety can participate in the assessment, treatment and research opportunities through the Child and Adolescent Anxiety Disorders Program. Our faculty of 7 child psychologists and 7 child psychiatrists has an extensive range of clinical and research expertise. Fellows will also have an opportunity to train with post-doctoral fellows in clinical health psychology and clinical neuropsychology. Training sites include the Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital, the child/adolescent psychiatric unit, and numerous outpatient opportunities in clinical psychology (psychotherapy, family therapy, child trauma, mood disorders, eating disorders, forensic issues, social skills training, and assessment) and pediatric psychology (hematology/oncology, endocrinology, pain management, elimination disorders). Our fellows also involve themselves in a range of pediatric specialties, including, but not limited to, developmental and behavioral, endocrinology, hematology, neurology, and physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Training in primary care in the Department of Family Medicine is also available. Overall the medical psychology fellows experience in each subspecialty track combines clinical, educational and research activities, with 30% devoted to research. Fellowship positions begin July 1. Applicants must submit a letter of interest, transcripts, curriculum vitae, completed application and at least three letters of reference. The application deadline is mid-January.
