This listing is not an APPIC Member program and is not APA Accredited. Applicants should be aware that this program has not undergone formal external quality review process.

The focus of the Department of Pediatrics Psychology Fellowship Training Program is to provide training in working with a broad variety of pediatric patient populations and clinical presentations. The program takes place within the University of Iowa Health Care organization and is housed in the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics and the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital (UISFCH). The faculty and staff are dedicated to preparing and educating postdoctoral-level trainees to provide psychological services for children and adolescents with various physical and mental health needs. The training program uses biopsychosocial, cognitive-behavioral, and behavioral models of psychology. The goal of the program is to train psychology fellows in the core competencies in Professional Psychology as established by the American Psychological Association, as well as specialty competencies related to Pediatric Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology. These competencies are taught through didactic seminars, journal clubs, research and clinical experiences, as well as group and individual supervision. 

Currently, we are offering a fellowship focused on pediatric health psychology services. The fellow will spend about 70% of their time in clinical activities and will have opportunities for research and structured educational activities as well. The fellow will spend clinical time embedded in outpatient specialty clinics working with children and adolescents with various health conditions including diabetes, cystic fibrosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and chronic pain and will collaborate with various medical specialties. Depending on the successful applicant’s interest, they may choose to focus on one or two specific subspecialties of pediatric psychology (e.g., Pediatric Gastroenterology, Cardiology, etc.). Opportunities for inpatient consultation/liaison service is also available. If desired, there is opportunity to work in clinics conducting neuropsychological testing or behavior analysis as an adjunct.
