APA ACCREDITED POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER

Applications are currently being accepted for an APA accredited postdoctoral fellowship in Pediatric Psychology and in Child Abuse and Neglect at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Three positions are anticipated: two positions in Pediatric Psychology and one position in Child Abuse and Neglect. Based on the scientist/practitioner model, the program emphasizes the training and development of psychologists who can assume leadership roles in clinical service delivery, research, and teaching. As such, the fellow will receive innovative training in evidence-based service delivery and will engage in active research programs. Fellows are required to spend at least 51% of their time in clinical activities. The other 49% of the time can be a combination of research, teaching, and clinical activities, designed and determined with the fellow's primary supervisor. Each fellow must submit at least one manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal each year they are a fellow. Most of our faculty members are involved with clinical research projects with federal funding. Fellows typically join ongoing projects, but opportunities for independent research exist as well. Grant writing opportunities are available and fellows are strongly encouraged to participate. Fellows will also have the opportunity to provide teaching or training. Seminars and didactics are required and opportunities (including funding) to attend conferences are available.



The Child Abuse and Neglect post-doctoral fellow will train at the Center on Child Abuse and Neglect (CCAN) located in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (see devbehavpeds.ouhsc.edu/ccan.asp). The fellow will design their post-doctoral fellowship experience with their primary supervisor by selecting from a variety of research, training, and clinical opportunities. The CCAN has active research programs in services outcome, implementation, and dissemination, funded by federal grants (e.g., NIMH, NIAAA, Fogarty International Center, CDC, HRSA, OJJDP, and Children's Bureau), state contracts, and foundation grants. Fellows have the opportunity to join research teams on ongoing projects, access archival data, and initiate research. Information about our faculty and research programs can be found at devbehavpeds.ouhsc.edu/faculty.asp and devbehavpeds.ouhsc.edu/res.asp. Advanced clinical training experiences in evidence-based treatments of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Treatment for Children with Sexual Behavior Programs, and Adolescent Sexual Offender Treatment programs are available through our clinics, as well as training in SafeCare for child neglect through our research programs. Fellows will participate in a two-semester Interdisciplinary Training Program in Child Abuse and Neglect (ITP) for advanced students in psychology, medicine, dentistry, occupational therapy/physical therapy, law, social work, education, public health, nursing, sociology, and related disciplines (see devbehavpeds.ouhsc.edu/itp.asp). Established in 1987, the ITP provides specialized training in clinical practice, prevention, policy formation, child advocacy, research, and administration in the field of child abuse and neglect. Trainees of ITP will integrate training in the Interdisciplinary Training Initiative for Underserved Children (ITIUC), with the goal to improve the health of abused or traumatized children and adolescents by increasing psychology trainees' competencies including knowledge, attitudes, and skills to work with underserved children through a discipline-specific and interdisciplinary training program. Additional training opportunities are available through our Native American Programs including Project Making Medicine (devbehavpeds.ouhsc.edu/native.asp).



For the two Pediatric Psychology post-doctoral fellowship positions, therapy, assessment, and consultation opportunities are available in a variety of clinics and inpatient services including hematology/oncology, general pediatrics, adolescent medicine, pediatric nephrology, and a hospital-wide consultation-liaison service. The fellow will provide direct services for children, adolescents, and their families on issues such as adjustment to diagnosis, adherence to medical regimens, behavior management for children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses, managing stress in the family, dealing with the siblings of the affected child, and other co-morbid problems in the child or family. The fellow will participate in interdisciplinary teams consisting of physicians, nurses, social workers, patient educators, and other trainees. The fellow will also provide services and consultation in outpatient primary care clinics in General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. On the inpatient consultation-liaison service, the fellow will receive training and supervision in responding to problematic situations with children, adolescents, and their families on inpatient medical units. Training takes place primarily at the University of Oklahoma Children's Hospital. The Pediatric Psychology program has been a part of the OUHSC since the late 1960's and is well integrated into the functioning of our Children's Hospital.
