Pediatric Psychologist Positions - Nemours/A. I. duPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, DE

Posted: Thursday, February 15, 2018


We are excited to continue our expansion of pediatric psychology specialty care services at Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children and are seeking two psychologists to complement our current team. Both psychologists will participate in the department's clinical, academic, and educational activities.

Candidates must possess a doctoral degree in psychology with focused training in pediatric psychology or clinical child psychology from an APA-approved clinical psychology program, an Internship from an APA-approved site, and at least one year of post-doctoral experience in a medical setting. Candidates should be licensed or license-eligible in Delaware.

Neurodevelopmental and Genetic Conditions
Nemours is seeking to expand the services we provide to children with neurodevelopmental and genetic conditions. We are seeking a psychologist with experience working with this population of children, specifically with regard to behavioral treatment and testing/assessment. The strong candidate will have solid experience with standardized assessment measures as well as assessing children who may not be amenable to standardized methods of testing (e.g., visual and motor impairments, nonverbal). The position will involve working with children with specific or global delays, neuromuscular diseases and complex challenges. The psychologist will work with other psychologists with similar interests, other disciplines in multidisciplinary clinic settings, and will provide consultation for inpatients where their expertise is needed. In addition, the psychologist will conduct diagnostic evaluations in an early childhood developmental clinic.

Spanish-Speaking Generalist
Nemours is dedicated to providing services to a diverse population, many of whom in the greater Wilmington area and downstate are Spanish-speaking. We are seeking a Spanish-speaking pediatric psychologist who has experience working with a wide array of patient populations in a medical setting including endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, neurology, and cardiology, to name but a few. While it would be desirable for the candidate to develop an area of focused expertise, we are seeking an individual who can work with Spanish-speaking families across illness populations. Similar to other positions posted, the psychologist will work with interdisciplinary teams in medical clinics and provide inpatient consultation-liaison services, outpatient psychological services, and psychological assessment.

In addition to meeting the needs of patients and families, the psychologist will work with hospital-wide initiatives to improve care for and reduce health disparities in the Spanish-speaking community. Moreover, the psychologist will further the development of cultural competence within the division and provide staff and student trainings, develop trainees who are Spanish-speaking, and provide supervision for Master's-level and doctoral level trainees.
