St. Louis Children's Hospital Fellowship Positions

St. Louis Children's Hospital Pediatric Psychology Fellowship Program

The Psychology Department of St. Louis Children’s Hospital at Washington University Medical Center is pleased to announce 2 Postdoctoral Fellowship positions in Pediatric Psychology beginning September 2015.  With a balance of in-depth and broad based training experiences, this one-year program (with an option to stay for a 2nd year) will prepare fellows to work independently in the practice of pediatric psychology.

The position will provide supervised clinical training in pediatric consultation/liaison, psychotherapy, and assessment. We are primarily a clinical training program, with several major rotations (transplant, hem/onc, pain, adherence) and minor rotations (craniofacial, newborn, research) available. We offer an individualized training program that allows us to tailor training opportunities to the specific clinical and professional needs of the fellow.  The fellow will be provided with a range of didactic experiences to complete the training experience and to prepare the fellow for transitioning into a professional role as a psychologist. Fellows are valued members of the Department of Psychology as well as the medical teams with whom they work. 

We are seeking candidates who are highly motivated learners interested in developing strong competence in pediatric psychology, while continuing to build a solid foundation in clinical child psychology. We prefer that applicants have completed an APA-accredited doctoral program and internship with specific training experiences in pediatric psychology and clinical child/adolescent psychology.

The fourteen pediatric psychologists and neuropsychologists in the Department of Psychology at St. Louis Children’s Hospital hold academic appointments within the Washington University School of Medicine.  Our fellowship program is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).  St. Louis Children’s Hospital is considered a premier hospital and medical training facility attracting high caliber clinicians and researchers.  St. Louis Children’s Hospital is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. Candidates from minority and diverse cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

For more information please see our website:

Interested applicants can submit their application through the CAS or can electronically submit a cover letter detailing training and professional interests, CV, three letters of reference (preferably one being written from your current internship director), and two sample clinical reports (i.e., one assessment report, one C/L or diagnostic report) to:
