Postdocs in Clinical Child Psychology at UC Davis Medical Center

The University of California, Davis Medical Center, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences announces two child positions for the 2014-2015 academic year. Our APPIC-accredited program provides advanced clinical training opportunities in individual, family, and group therapy (clinic- and field-based); psychological assessment (independent and multidisciplinary team evaluations); and consultation within the county and with outside providers. All services are provided through a Sacramento County Behavioral Health affiliated outpatient community mental health clinic that meets the needs of children and adolescents who qualify for Medi-Cal coverage. The clinic is staffed by full-time UC Davis faculty psychologists and psychiatrists and is also a primary training site for UC Davis child and adolescent psychiatry fellows. Medical students and psychiatry residents also complete rotations at the clinic. Within our training site, there is a strong collaborative atmosphere and emphasis on interdisciplinary teamwork.  Our fellows develop positive working relationships with a number of professionals within the community that last beyond their training year.
During the training year, fellows will receive three hours of individual supervision per week with core faculty members, biweekly group supervision with our program director, as well as weekly seminars with core and volunteer faculty. In addition, fellows will have the opportunity to attend and present at Departmental Grand Rounds and to teach a psychiatric interviewing class to second year medical students.
