Positions in each of three areas of emphasis are available: (1) Pediatric Psychology, (2) Child Abuse and Neglect, and (3) Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. Based on the scientist/practitioner model, the OUHSC program emphasizes the training and development of psychologists who can assume leadership roles in clinical service delivery, research, and teaching. As such, all fellows receive innovative training in service delivery and engage in active research programs. Fellows are required to spend at least 51% of their time in clinical activities, and can spend the remaining time in research activities if so desired. Fellows typically join ongoing faculty projects, but opportunities for independent research exist as well. Grant writing opportunities are available and strongly encouraged. Seminars and didactics are required and funding opportunities to attend conferences are available. Please contact Dr. Melanie Nelson (Melanie-Nelson@ouhsc.edu ) for more information. Pediatric Psychology (2 positions anticipated): Therapy, assessment, and consultation opportunities are available for fellows in pediatric psychology in a variety of clinics and inpatient services including hematology/oncology, general pediatrics, and a hospital-wide consultation-liaison service. Specialty outpatient clinic rotations include pain management, sickle cell disease, hemophilia, and pediatric cancer, including brain tumor clinic and a late effects clinic for children and adolescents who have completed cancer treatment. Outpatient primary care services are available in a general pediatrics clinic, Fostering Hope Clinic for children and adolescents in foster care placements, and a Latino outreach clinic. Fellows provide services as part of a hospital-wide inpatient consultation-liaison service, working with the families of children and adolescents with a variety of acute and chronic medical conditions. Trainees have the opportunity to consult for various medical specialties, participate as a member of multidisciplinary treatment teams, attend didactics regarding pediatrics and primary care, and participate in research projects and/or grant-writing. Training takes place primarily at the Children’s Hospital at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center.

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.
