CHOC Children's Hospital
CHOC Children's (Children’s Hospital of Orange County) (CHOC) is pleased to offer up to 4 one-year, full time, postdoctoral fellowships in the Department of Pediatric Psychology. The training year begins on August 24, 2015 and ends on August 26, 2016. The postdoctoral fellowships are a part of the Psychology Training Program that includes an APA accredited internship. The postdoctoral fellowships at CHOC offer advanced training in the area of pediatric and/or child psychology. The goal of the training program is to allow fellows to further their professional development so that they can function independently as a psychologist across a wide variety of settings. The training program is designed to allow for the natural progression from internship training, where a variety of new clinical skills are learned, to a greater focus on the application of these skills with an increasing degree of independence. Along with this focus, training increasingly focuses on the development of professional skills necessary for independent functioning (areas include serving as a consultant within specific medical teams, program development, and/or grant writing). Fellows will receive training in assessment and consultation within a medical/clinical setting as well as additional experiences with more traditional intervention or assessment outpatient cases.
