The section's scope of practice includes a medically-based yet highly interdisciplinary inpatient eating disorder program at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center that treats patients age 10- 23 years. The section is also in a unique position to provide medical and psychosocial support for transgender youth. In addition, an interdisciplinary outpatient clinic provides psychotherapy for adolescents presenting with complex health issues including PCOS, obesity, menstrual disorders, chronic fatigue, and chronic pain syndromes. The position is 70% - 80% clinical (clinician educator track) with the other 20% - 30% consisting of resident/ medical student education and a mix of research, program development, and service as the candidate's interest dictates.
Clinical responsibilities include providing assessment, individual and family therapy as a member of an interdisciplinary team of Adolescent Health providers. A strong relational focus that incorporates cognitive behavioral strategies (including ACT and DBT) as well as an orientation to family systems work is preferred. Experience in treating disordered eating is preferred but not required.
