Faculty Position – Integrated Behavioral Health Division of Pediatric Psychology, Department of Pediatrics C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Michigan Medicine Ann Arbor, Michigan
The Divisions of Pediatric Psychology and General Pediatrics at Michigan Medicine invites applications for a faculty appointment (open rank) in the Division of Pediatric Psychology within the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Michigan Medical School. Michigan Medicine is located in Ann Arbor, a vibrant and diverse community consistently rated as one of the best places to live in the United States.
We are seeking a pediatric psychologist to expand our Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) program in our effort to provide behavioral health services to all children in our General Pediatrics clinics. Michigan Medicine has 9 General Pediatrics clinics, and provides primary care serves to over 50,000 children in southeast Michigan. The diversity of the patients seen in our General Pediatrics clinics vary depending upon the location of the clinic. The greater Ann Arbor area is a diverse community in terms of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and religion. This diversity is present and valued at Michigan Medicine, where we welcome a breath of perspectives to better serve the institution and the community. We are planning on expanding the IBH program into underserved urban General Pediatrics clinics, and would welcome applications candidates with experience working with diverse populations. Additionally, the successful applicant will have extensive experience providing short-term, solution-oriented behavioral health treatment while co-located in the primary care setting. Applicants should be familiar with current empirically-based treatments for children that present with a variety of behavioral health problems including (but not limited to): Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), externalizing behavior problems, anxiety, depression, migraines, abdominal pain, elimination disorders, feeding problems, and sleep problems. Specific clinical training and skills in treating all of the aforementioned disorders collaboratively, with primary care pediatricians, is essential.
The administrative home of the successful candidate would be the Division of Pediatric Psychology, which is comprised of 17 faculty who are fully integrated into pediatric subspecialty areas, and have close and supportive working relationships with both community pediatricians and hospital-based physician specialists. Supervision and training for pediatric psychology postdoctoral fellows, interns, advanced practicum students, pediatric house officers, and medical students is expected. This position is largely clinical in nature but opportunities will be available to establish a program of research/scholarly activity that aligns with the overall objectives and activities of the Division of Pediatric Psychology and the Department of Pediatrics. Opportunities exist for collaborative research and program development within the Department of Pediatrics and throughout Michigan Medicine.
Applicants should possess a doctoral degree from an APA/CPA-accredited program and internship, postdoctoral training in pediatric psychology, and be licensed or license-eligible as a Psychologist in the state of Michigan. Faculty rank and compensation will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Michigan Medicine conducts background screening and pre-employment drug testing on job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent job offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background screening. Background screenings are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Report Act.
The review process will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should send a CV and letter of interest to Emily Fredericks, PhD, Director, Division of Pediatric Psychology (email@example.com).
