Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Fellows gain experience in an academic health care system setting

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital offers two 12-month post-doctoral fellowship positions in psychology:

  • Pediatric Psychology, with a special focus on consultation-liaison and hematology/oncology
  • Autism and Developmental Disabilities

The psychology fellowship program is designed to provide clinical and research experiences necessary to support independent practice in pediatric and clinical child psychology and advanced training for a career within an academic medical or hospital setting.

Opportunities for supervisory experiences with psychology interns exist for both assessment and intervention. Fellows will have the opportunity to work with several supervisors to obtain hours necessary for licensure and will participate in scheduled didactics. There is an expectation for involvement in collaborative research. The requirement may be satisfied with an approved proposal for program development.
