Opening

We are currently seeking to fill a full time faculty position for a licensed psychologist in the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at the Golisano Children’s Hospital of the University of Rochester. This is a vibrant multidisciplinary division with approximately 90 faculty and staff that participate in active clinical and research programs focusing on autism spectrum disorders, health disparities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the needs of transition age youth, developmental and behavioral screening, and other areas.

The Division provides developmental diagnosis and management for children and youth with a wide array of developmental disorders from the Rochester metropolitan area and much of Western New York State. There are over 8000 visits to the multidisciplinary clinic annually. Division faculty maintain an active portfolio of funded Developmental and Behavioral sponsored programs with close collaboration across the university. Graduate education is conducted through medical student and resident teaching, an ACGME Fellowship in Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) program, predoctoral students in psychology, and postdoctoral fellows in psychology and other disciplines. In addition, the University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, the UCEDD, widens the scope of Divisional activities to include advocacy and community based initiatives. ICARE* values are demonstrated in all responsibilities.

Patient Care

Primary clinical activities include: (a) providing diagnostic evaluation to children suspected of having a developmental disorder, (b) providing behavioral assessment and intervention to children with developmental disabilities co-occurring emotional and behavior disorders, and (c) providing assessment and treatment, as a part of an interdisciplinary team, to children with pediatric feeding disorders. In addition to traditional clinical care, the applicant should be prepared to participate in telehealth initiatives.

Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Clinical Services provides ongoing and time-limited targeted treatment for behavioral concerns based on a comprehensive functional behavioral assessment. Assessment and treatment are provided within a family-and patient-centered care model that includes collaboration with school and community providers for continuity of care across systems. Diagnostics integrate information from family, school, community providers and on-site assessment to determine the presence or absence of autism spectrum disorders and co-existing conditions. The applicant must be trained in the diagnosis of children and youth with autism spectrum disorders including clinical use of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule to support diagnostic evaluation.

Participation in the Academic Mission

The applicant will be encouraged to participate in scholarly activities as evidenced by: publication of clinical investigation or clinical observations, reviews, and chapters; and reviewing manuscripts. The position may include clinical assessment of research participants as a collaborator with other faculty.

Teaching

Our division maintains a strong focus on training of future clinicians, with a very active psychology training program with students ranging from the undergraduate through post-doctoral levels of training. We anticipate that part of the applicant’s clinical time will be devoted to the supervision and training of psychology trainees in the clinical setting. We anticipate that the applicant will be a contributor to on-going program development and evaluation. Faculty are given opportunities to participate in the LEND program and other divisional training activities.

Administrative

All faculty serve as consultants to other faculty and community physicians. Faculty are expected to be academically current in the field through continuing education, literature and seminars and complete the continuing education necessary for URMC credentialling. Additionally, faculty may take a role in the development of departmental policies, procedures and standards. Faculty may be assigned to divisional, departmental, or faculty committees. Participation in local or regional clinical affairs through membership in clinical societies or specialty governing boards is encouraged.
