Program Description

The UofL Child Clinical/Pediatric Psychology internship program strives to provide trainees with intense broad-based training experiences in child clinical and pediatric psychology. This exposure to the major areas of child and adolescent practice is designed to allow the intern to choose a career path that can lead to directly entering the workforce or pursuing a postdoctoral specialty. The internship program is based in the Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry & Psychology, Department of Pediatrics, University of Louisville School of Medicine. Our outpatient clinic (Bingham Clinic) is the fourth oldest outpatient mental health clinic in the US. Trainee experiences in Bingham Clinic include psychological testing, individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy (with the Children's Health and Illness Recovery Program [CHIRP] for youth with chronic medical conditions). Year-long rotations include outpatient therapy and testing.  Four-month rotations include inpatient pediatric consultation-liaison at Norton Children's Hospital, integrated pediatric specialty care (which may include endocrinology [diabetes] and/or solid organ transplant, as well as others), and an inpatient child & adolescent psychiatric unit. Interns also have a year long minor rotation in emergency room assessment/consultation. Three hours of individual, face-to-face supervision are provided weekly, along with 1-2 hours of group supervision. Several seminars are conducted throughout the year, including year-long seminars on Advanced Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy, Special Topics in Psychology, CHIRP seminar, and Psychiatry seminar. We serve a diverse patient population representing Louisville Metro and the surrounding region.  Clinical problems/disorders addressed typically include depression, anxiety, ADHD, learning disorders, PTSD, adjustment difficulties, parenting problems, family stress, social skills deficits, autism spectrum disorders, bipolar disorder, psychosis, psychological adjustment to chronic and life-threatening illness and trauma, etc. While active involvement in research is not required, interns are invited to participate in some role with ongoing faculty research initiatives.
