Our pediatric psychology postdoctoral training program is housed within the Department of Psychology at St. Louis Children's Hospital.  We offer two postdoctoral positions, one year in length with an option of staying for a second year. We are hoping to add a third position for the 2020-2021 training year. 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. We are primarily a clinical training program, with three areas of specialization (transplant, hem/onc, medical consultation liaison), along with the opportunity for other minor areas of clinical focus (craniofacial, newborn, pain, adherence, research) available.

We offer an individualized training program that allows us to tailor training opportunities to the specific clinical and professional needs of the fellow.  Formal and informal didactic opportunities exist within our department as well as within the Washington University School of Medicine Departments of Pediatrics and Child Psychiatry. Fellows are valued members of the Department of Psychology as well as the medical teams with whom they work.
