Children-s-Hospital-Colorado

Overview

The University of Colorado School of Medicine / Children’s Hospital Colorado is offering three postdoctoral fellowship positions in Pediatric Neuropsychology for the 2020-2022 training period:

  • Track 1: Neurology
  • Track 2: Rehabilitation
  • Track 3: Spanish Bilingual & Multicultural Emphasis

These two-year fellowships are designed to provide training experiences consistent with INS-APA Division 40 and Houston Conference guidelines. The goal of the program is to provide a broad range of clinical and research experiences to prepare the individual for board certification in clinical neuropsychology through ABPP/ABCN and a future career in pediatric neuropsychology. Applicants may apply to all three tracks, but should be able to describe the relevance of their experience and training goals to each track.

Fellows in all tracks will have the opportunity to work with children from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds and will see children with a wide range of medical diagnoses including but not limited to epilepsy, stroke, childhood cancers, neurofibromatosis, tuberous sclerosis, hydrocephalus, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and mild to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Fellows will also participate in multidisciplinary clinics. Many of our referrals relate to diagnostic concerns, longitudinal assessment, risk assessment, and educational planning, and the fellow will hone skills in providing recommendations to physicians, parents, teachers, and therapists.

Diversity / Equity / Inclusion

Diversity

We are committed to creating a diverse environment for students, residents, fellows, and faculty. We believe that an environment of inclusiveness and respect promotes excellence, and that a setting where diversity is valued leads to the training of physicians who are prepared to practice culturally effective medicine and meet the needs of the various populations we serve.
