Pediatric Psychologist - Clinical, Non-Tenure Track Academic Position

 

The University of Tennessee Department of Pediatrics, in conjunction with the Neuroscience Institute at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, is seeking a Pediatric Psychologist to join the Neurology Division in a full-time, non-tenure track academic position (instructor to professor title, depending on experience and credentials). The Psychologist will join a service within the Neuroscience institute that currently includes 3 neuropsychologists and 3 psychometrists.



The primary role of the Psychologist will be to provide short-term, outpatient therapy at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and facilitate transfer of long-term care to community providers. Referrals will come from the neurology department clinics and include patients followed for headache, Tourette's syndrome, and conversion disorder. There may be an opportunity to expand to inpatient consultation, group therapy, and family therapy, depending on the interest of the Psychologist. Opportunities are also available for the Psychologist to work with other disciplines in establishing and maintaining clinics. A negotiable percentage of time will be dedicated to teaching and/or clinical research projects.



Applicants must hold a doctoral degree from an APA-accredited program, must have completed an APA/CPA-approved internship, and must have the equivalent of one year (full-time) postdoctoral experience in health psychology, with specialized training in pediatric populations. Experience working with patients with neurologic disorders is strongly preferred. Applicants must be licensed or license-eligible as Health Service Psychologists in the state of Tennessee, and must be able to meet all credentialing requirements for core privileges as a Psychologist with the Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare System.



The Neuroscience Institute has 12 neurologists, 5 neurosurgeons, 2 neurointerventional radiologists, 3 neuroradiologists, 3 neuropsychologists, 3 clinical neuroscientists, and 1 neuro-ophthalmologist. In addition to the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, specialty services include pediatric stroke, pediatric brain tumor, tuberous sclerosis, Batten’s Disease, Spina bifida, cerebral palsy, and Muscular Dystrophy. The Neuroscience Institute is ranked in the top 25 nationally by USA News & World Report.
