Apply for the Harris Program 

One-year training positions are available for psychologists and child psychiatrists. In addition to a demonstrated interest in infancy and early childhood, applicants must have a PhD or PsyD in clinical, counseling, or school psychology and have completed an APA-accredited internship, or a MD and have completed a residency in child and adolescent psychiatry. Minorities and bilingual candidates are encouraged to apply (must be a U.S. citizen) since most of the fellow clinical site placements are bilingual settings. Although most of the trainees in the program are full-time, occasionally arrangements may be made to pursue training on a part-time basis. Selected candidates for fellowship positions must complete all graduate degree requirements and provide proof of degree prior to starting fellowship. Postdoctoral fellows receive a stipend plus benefits and paid leave during their training.

Your application will be considered for one of the fellowship positions that will be starting next September.

Applicants meeting our initial requirements will be invited for in-person interviews, which will be held January 14th-15th and January 28th-29th.
