Oregon Health & Science University Postdoctoral Scholar in Portland, Oregon
The Institute on Development and Disability (IDD) at OHSU is Oregon’s leading academic health organization working to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities through state-of-the-art patient care, innovative scholarship, statewide public health efforts, and advocacy. In addition to a robust clinical enterprise, the IDD sponsors a University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities; extensive training initiatives, including a federally funded interdisciplinary training program (LEND) as well as several accredited discipline-specific training programs; Oregon’s Title V program for youth with special health needs; Oregon’s Office on Disability and Health; and several other research centers and programs. The Institute successfully secures approximately $10 million annually in extramural funds to support sponsored projects.
The behavioral pediatrics postdoctoral position emphasizes consultation and treatment activities within a pediatric setting. Clinical activities will focus on behavioral pediatrics and integrated primary care. Behavioral pediatrics addresses the well child gap between general pediatric care and mental health services. Training will emphasize collaboration and clinical consultation within general pediatrics clinics, training of pediatric residents, and outpatient treatment emphasizing common behavior problems that present in outpatient pediatric medical settings (e.g., bedtime problems, tantrums, noncompliance, mealtime and feeding difficulties, delayed toilet training), behavior problems with a biological component (e.g., soiling), and biological/medical problems with a significant behavioral component (e.g., enuresis, tics). Opportunities for inpatient (medical) consultation and provision of traditional mental health services may be available.
The postdoctoral fellow will have access to a multitude of career development opportunities through the IDD, Department of Pediatrics, and OHSU, including a full range of didactic offerings. Further, opportunities to offer community based trainings to parents and service providers are available.
