The Psychology Department of St. Louis Children’s Hospital is pleased to recruit for 4 postdoctoral fellowship positions in pediatric psychology for the 2023-2024 training year, one year in length with an option of staying for a second year. The training year will begin on September 5, 2023. The program is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). 


The fellowship offers a strong emphasis on clinical training, with major and minor opportunities available in the areas of: 

  • Medical consultation liaison
  • Solid organ transplant/dialysis/cardiology 
  • Hematology / Oncology 
  • Pain and somatic symptom disorders

  • Gender diverse youth 
  • Sleep 
  • Adherence / Diabetes 

We offer an individualized training program that allows us to tailor training opportunities to the specific clinical and professional interests and needs of the fellow.  All fellows participate in our multidisciplinary craniofacial clinic and outpatient psychotherapy clinic. While primarily a clinical training program, the fellowship also provides training in scholarly, QI, research, and program development activities. 


Fellows participate in a comprehensive set of didactic programming within the department that covers foundational as well as innovative topics, including but not limited to clinical intervention, DEI, professional issues, case conference, supervision, and QI/research. In addition, fellows may attend select programs within the Washington University School of Medicine Departments of Pediatrics, Neurology, and Child Psychiatry. Fellows are valued members of the Department of Psychology as well as the medical teams with whom they work. 


Our department serves inpatient and outpatient services to a diverse population of families from urban and rural settings, range of SES, range of ethnic diversity, ages (newborn-young adult), referral concern, and disease presentation. There are 3 locations where psychology provides care to patients and families (SLCH Main Hospital, SLCH Specialty Care Center West County, and SLCH Specialty Care Center South County). Psychology fellows may work at more than one location dependent upon their clinical rotations.
