Successful applicants will be invited to attend a virtual interview day. As candidates are making a two-year commitment to our training site, we feel it is very important that each candidate gets a clear sense of the goodness of fit of their match with us. Interview invitations are extended by phone whenever possible. This year interview days are on January 126.96.36.199.9, and 10, 2024.
The interview days begin at 9:30 EST with an orientation to the program by the Director of Training. Candidates then have individual interviews with faculty members and one half-hour individual interview with a current Fellow. A group meeting with current fellows is provided as well. Interview appointments are customized, to the extent possible, to the interests of the candidates. It is not possible to request meetings with specific staff. Due to the customized schedule for each candidate, the length of the interview days varies.
The Yale Child Study Center is a two year integrated clinical internship and postdoctoral fellowship. The internship is the first of two required years and provides general training in child clinical psychology with an emphasis on psychological assessment. During the internship year, approximately 15 hours per week are dedicated to specific areas of specialization: Early Childhood, Pediatrics, Autism/Developmental Disorders, or Children and Trauma. The second year provides the opportunity to meet requirements for licensure; the generalist components of the program focus on hospital based work, including serving as a primary clinician in an inpatient setting, and the remaining 50% time is dedicated to the area of specialization.
