Area-Specific Seminars

Clinical Child and Pediatric Psychology Seminar: This weekly seminar series covers a wide range of topics for our clinical child and pediatric psychology trainees. Topics include clinical skill-building, professional development, ethics, and child-focused research. We regularly have invited speakers from outside disciplines. This seminar is attended by faculty and attendance is required for post-doctoral fellows, interns, and child area graduate students.

Med/Health Seminar:  This bi-monthly seminar focuses on clinical and research topics for our med/health trainees.  One monthly session is focused exclusively on interns and topics specific to them from getting oriented to applying to postdocs.  The other monthly meeting is an “all play” for all med/health trainees for a wide range of health psychology topics.
