This Fellow will work with children with various chronic medical conditions, including but not limited to eosinophilic esophagitis, post-transplant status, cystic fibrosis, cancer, various gastrointestinal conditions, and genetic syndromes. The Fellow will function within a multidisciplinary setting including professionals from pediatric gastroenterology, nutrition, occupational therapy, speech pathology, and nursing. Clinical training in pediatric feeding disorders will involve managing cases for patients in our day treatment program, conducting multidisciplinary evaluations, and providing direct services through our outpatient clinic. The Fellow will also gain experience with consultation services within a pediatric gastroenterology clinic. Intervention focuses on evidenced-based treatments with a heavy emphasis on behavioral treatment, parent training models of care, and building community capacity. There will also be opportunities for independent and/or collaborative research – building upon our research lab that has ongoing clinical trials and epidemiological studies.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. or Psy.D. from an APA- or CPA-accredited clinical or school psychology doctoral program and have completed an APPIC-approved internship.
