Clinical training occurs in a variety of child psychiatry outpatient clinics and in a primary care setting with an underserved population. 

Applicants must have a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from an APA or CPA accredited program by August 2015. The start date of the fellowship is September 1, 2015.
