Medical Student & Resident Education

Medical and psychology graduate students, pediatric residents, and psychology and neuropsychology interns and fellows are actively involved in the care of patients in our clinics.

The Division provides the major instruction to pediatric residents in the evaluation of development and behavior and treatment of developmental disabilities. Division faculty provide direct teaching for PL1 and PL2 residents in various clinics as well as through didactics including, but not limited to: Dyslexia, Myelomeningocele, Autism, ADHD, Low Birth Weight, Down Syndrome and other Neurodevelopmental Disorders. Residents are also integrated with programs such as Early Childhood Intervention, Speech, Occupational, Physical, and Recreational therapies, and Child Life. A Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics elective is also available for pediatric residents.

In addition to involvement in the pediatric residency program, faculty are actively involved in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. Program at UTSW, the Pediatric Neuropsychology Fellowship Program at Children’s Medical Center, and we are in the process of developing a Fellowship Program in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics.
