Fellowships and Internships
Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship (ACGME)
Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Fellows will acquire knowledge and skills to become leaders in the field of developmental-behavioral pediatrics. They will become experts in interdisciplinary clinical care, research, and education. They will gain a solid foundation in public health knowledge related to developmental-behavioral issues, with opportunities for individual- and community-centered advocacy.
Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND)
Our LEND program offers collaborative interdisciplinary training focused on improving the health of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and special healthcare needs.
Psychology postdoctoral fellows are trained in a 12-month supervised experience. Fellows will achieve competence (clinical, assessment, consultation, and research) in pediatric disabilities. All postdoctoral fellows participate in the LEND program.
Predoctoral trainees will receive individualized and coordinated training in assessment and intervention with children with developmental disabilities and their families. Training is conducted at the Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic and Mt. Hope Family Center.
Undergraduate Research Internships
These internships are currently open to University of Rochester undergraduate students. Undergraduate interns will help with studies testing behavioral interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder. This is an excellent opportunity for students considering graduate school or careers in psychology or education.
