Program Description

The mission of the O'Grady Residency in Psychology Program is to prepare future leaders in psychology through excellent training in evidence-based clinical care, research and advocacy. We are committed to providing the highest quality of supervision and training, fostering the development of candidates from a diversity of backgrounds, and, serving the needs of children, adolescents, and families. The program is committed to a scientist-practitioner model of training where clinical practice is informed by evidence (research) and research is generated by the desire to improve the care of children and families. Training emphasizes developmental, interdisciplinary, and family-centered approaches and a scientific basis for psychological assessment and treatment. To access details about our program, please visit the website. Interns concentrate their clinical training through participation in one of two tracks: Behavioral Medicine or Child Clinical Psychology. Residents in the Behavioral Medicine track gain experience with children/adolescents with sleep disorders, chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, epilepsy, adherence problems, developmental delays, medical complications, and adjustment disorders. Residents in the Child Clinical Track gain experience primarly with children/adolescents with ADHD and complex comorbidities. Additional experiences include working with children with developmental delays, autism, epilepsy, trauma backgrounds, sleep disorders, and anxiety and depression. In addition, all residents participate in an applied research experience focusing on evidence-based assessment and intervention. Some examples include: community-based program evaluation, child behavior and nutrition (IBD, Epilepsy, Cystic Fibrosis, Sickle Cell Disease, Obesity, and JRA), adherence, obesity.

 

In consideration of COVID-19, we are providing training, clinical, and research experiences via telemedicine and will integrate more into in-person services as our safety practices allow. Please view website for further details.
