Pediatric Psychology Postdoctoral Training Program Greenville - Program Details

Advancing psychology training

The Pediatric Psychology Postdoctoral Training Program at Prisma Health adheres to a developmental training model, wherein trainee skills are assessed at the beginning of the training process, trainees are observed closely while their skills in evaluation and intervention grow, and trainees gradually move towards more independent practice as their level of proficiency warrants and under the close, supportive supervision of staff and faculty.

Throughout the process, trainees receive training in more specialized competencies building on existing knowledge, and apply new skills within a wide range of patient populations.

As they move towards completion of their training, trainees are expected to independently conceptualize, administer, interpret, and report the results of assessments. Trainees are likewise expected to independently develop and implement treatment plans for intervention. There is also an expectation that trainees will further refine their professional competencies and their ability to function as a member of a multidisciplinary team in a fast-paced, technologically advancing medical environment.

The program has been designed to achieve an integration of clinical, academic, scientific, and professional training, and aims to strengthen and refine the trainee’s knowledge and application of established and empirically-based assessment and intervention techniques appropriate in infant, child, and adolescent populations.

The training program places a strong emphasis on flexibility, so that trainees can identify and work toward their own specialized goals while at the same time attaining general skill competencies required of Psychologists.

Trainees may have the opportunity to conduct and/or participate in research.
