Lovick C. Miller Post-doctoral Fellowship Program
Program Description and Application
The Lovick C. Miller Post-doctoral Fellowship Program was begun in 1992, in honor of Dr. Miller who retired as the Chief Psychologist after 36 years of an exemplary career at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. The fellowship in Pediatric Psychology is an individually tailored training experience in a multidisciplinary medical center child psychiatric and pediatric setting. Clinical populations available include outpatient children and adolescents seen through the facilities of Bingham Child Guidance Center, the fourth oldest such facility in the country (established in 1913). This includes individual, family, and group therapy with children and adolescents with a wide range of psychopathological conditions. Extensive experience is available with pediatric patient populations via the Pediatric Consultation-Liaison Service, which serves Kosair Children’s Hospital.
The fellow will experience increasing levels of clinical and administrative challenge through such activities as coordinating psychosocial assessments and care for pediatric bone marrow transplant patients, conducting pre-transplant assessments on renal and heart transplant recipients, coordinating psychological services for patients with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, dysautonomia, etc., through the Children's Health & Illness Recovery Program (CHIRP).
Fellows participate in individual and group supervision, seminars, case conference, and service rounds. Approximately 20% of the fellow’s time is allocated to research; a number of ongoing projects are available for involvement. The multiple facilities of the University of Louisville Health Sciences Center, Norton Healthcare System and the Bingham Child Guidance Center provide state of the art resources for the Training Program.
The University of Louisville, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry also offers a Clinical Child/Pediatric Psychology Predoctoral Internship and Child Psychiatric Residency. Our faculty is composed of four clinical child psychologists and six child psychiatrists. Clinical staff within the Bingham Child Guidance Center, who are also involved with the training experience, include numerous clinical social workers and art/expressive therapists.
