Facility: Rhode Island Hospital

Location: Providence, RI

PhD required.
A division of Rhode Island Hospital, Hasbro Children’s Hospital is the region’s premiere provider of pediatric clinical care. The hospital offers a broad spectrum of both routine care and specialty programs not available elsewhere.

Hasbro Children’s has the only pediatric emergency department, Level 1 Trauma Center, pediatric critical care teams, and 24-hour ambulance in the region. Psychologists are interdisciplinary team members of several hospital services, including outpatient specialty clinics, consultation-liaison, partial hospitalization, and inpatient psychiatric care.

Activities are distributed as follows: 70% clinical time, 20% research time, and 10% didactic time. Scheduling for position will involve rotating through varied hospital clinical services. Within the 70% clinical time, 12 hours per week will be devoted to outpatient services and multidisciplinary clinic care (to be determined from established training rotations within Pediatric Psychology by the needs and interests of the fellow) throughout the year. 16 hours per week of training will be spent on an intensive services rotation (Hasbro Partial Hospitalization Program [PHP], Hasbro Medical Psychiatric Inpatient Unit [MPI], or Consultation/Liaison service [C/L]) for 8 months. For the other 4 months, fellows may choose rotation experiences of their choice for these 16 hours. Fellows will spend 8 hours per week in research activities and 4 hours per week in didactic activities (e.g., grand rounds, post doc seminar, Friday research seminars).
