Our virtual interviews take place across three Open House dates in early to mid January. Our schedule is such that it is a whole day, and we try to make it a really fun and relaxed day. The Open House will be a blend of virtual and asynchronous activities. Applicants selected for the open house will be provided with a video overview and tour of the program prior their interview date. The interview day activities will take place virtually via Zoom. The day starts with a program review and Q&A by the Training Director, followed by up to 1-2 interviews with faculty and postdocs. During lunch time, applicants will be provided the opportunity to meet current interns. Applicants will be able to join different break out rooms to discuss their interests and questions with current interns. Following this meeting, applicants will complete an additional 1-2 interviews. At the end of the day, the Training Director will host a meeting with applicants to answer any remaining questions and explain next steps. Virtual interviews as required. Interview dates are:
Tuesday January 11, 2022
Friday January 14, 2022
Thursday, January 20, 2022
Our faculty works very hard to review applications efficiently so that we can provide invitations to open house dates as quickly as possible.
The Internship Program at the Mailman Center for Child Development, Department of Pediatrics, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine offers training opportunities with an emphasis in clinical child psychology and pediatric psychology. The program is designed to offer experiences with the child (and his/her family) with, or at risk for, developmental disabilities or behavioral problems due to genetic, environmental, or medical factors. There are opportunities for training in the psychological aspects of traditional developmental disabilities (e.g., genetic disorders, autism, and learning disabilities), pediatric psychology, and prevention in at-risk populations. Interns will develop profession-wide competencies in health service psychology, as well as specific skills within the domains of child clinical and pediatric psychology. Our program emphasizes an interdisciplinary developmental approach to care and cultural competence throughout training experiences. Interns will gain experience in clinical/developmental assessment, intervention, prevention, and consultation while working alongside professionals from other disciplines. Interns will also acquire skills to work with individuals from a variety of cultural and economic backgrounds. Matching to a position involves a 20- to 28-hour/week commitment to one funding rotation across the 12-month internship year. The remaining time will be spent on rotations selected to meet the training needs of the intern and defined competencies of the program. The specific 12-month rotation commitment is determined at the time of the match.
For the 2022-2023, we have one position for each of the following funded positions.
