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. 

Clinical experiences include outpatient clinics focused on diagnostic assessment of learning and attention difficulties as well as cognitive sequelae of chronic and acute medical illnesses. The fellow will receive training in evaluation methodologies (developmental, intellectual, achievement, neuropsychological) and interventions (educational, cognitive-behavioral, and health related prevention). Fellows will also have the opportunities to work with faculty to complete research as well as gain experience with supervising doctoral level students in clinic.
