Fellowship Curriculum

  • All fellows will work with their primary mentor and an oversight committee to develop an Individualized Development Plan (IDP) that aligns with their career goals and will guide their progress during the fellowship.
  • All fellows receive supervised training in outpatient and inpatient consults, intervention, and risk assessment.
  • While fellows have the opportunity to see a wide variety of referral concerns, fellows who wish to supplement their training can participate in specialty rotations with supervisors who are experts in: 
    • Early Childhood Assessment
    • Infectious Diseases/HIV Clinic
    • Pain Service
    • Transition/Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA)
    • Supervision
  • Fellows receive training in grant writing, study design, data collection, data analysis and interpretation, preparation and publication of manuscripts and presentation of findings at local, national, and international meetings. Research activities and involvement depend on the goals of the individual fellow.
  • All fellows are provided supervision in a scaffolded approach.
    • Supervision is initially very close with increased independence as the fellow develops professionally and demonstrates increased proficiency with research and clinical activities.
    • Fellows are also provided with the opportunity to provide supervision to graduate students and pre-doctoral interns in research and clinical activities under the supervision of a licensed psychologist.
  • All fellows participate in weekly trainee didactics that consist of journal club, group supervision, and lectures. Fellows are expected to present at least two times each year in didactics.
  • All fellows attend weekly Psychology Rounds and are expected to present in Rounds at least one time each year.
  • Multiple seminars are available campus-wide with focus on medical and psychological clinical and research factors in pediatric hematology-oncology and infectious diseases patients.
  • All fellows have weekly supervision with their primary mentors.
    • Fellows also have additional clinical supervision for both assessment and intervention cases. This is conducted in both group and individual format with multiple attending psychologists.
    • Fellows also have a minimum of one academic product submitted by the time they complete fellowship. Additional expectations for scholarly activities are agreed upon by fellows and their primary mentor(s) and vary depending upon each fellow’s percentage of research effort.
