Clinical Child and Pediatric Psychology Fellowships, Wilmington, Del.

Program Overview

The Division of Behavioral Health at Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware offers 10 clinical postdoctoral fellowships beginning August or September 2024. Positions are open to graduates from American Psychological Association-approved doctoral programs who will have completed their internship training and all degree requirements (including dissertation defense) by the start of fellowship. Fellowships are one year in duration unless otherwise noted. The fellowships offer clinical training across Pediatric Psychology, Integrated Primary Care, Clinical Child Psychology and the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND). 

The mission of the Department of Psychology at Nemours Children’s is “to improve well-being through quality behavioral health care, education, training and research in a collaborative, inclusive and culturally responsive manner.” Therefore, fellows will actively participate in a monthly diversity and cultural humility seminar and psychology grand rounds in diversity and cultural competence. Fellows who are bilingual Spanish-English will participate in a biweekly bilingual supervision seminar with our Spanish-speaking faculty. Additional opportunities to engage in diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism are also available and strongly encouraged.

In addition to clinical hours, fellows participate in didactic seminars spanning topics such as professional development, wellness, clinical supervision, advocacy, research and scholarly inquiry and hospital grand rounds. Fellows also have opportunities to supervise other psychology trainees from our psychology externship and internship programs. All fellows (except LEND program) may choose to participate in research training. Research is mentored by faculty within the Center for Healthcare Delivery Science, and one full day per week is set aside for these activities.
