Lovick C. Miller Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program

The Lovick C. Miller Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program, which began in 1992, was named 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.

Postdoctoral Fellows in pediatric psychology have direct involvement in two challenging clinical and applied research programs:

  • Pediatric Consultation-Liaison Service to Norton Children’s Hospital - the fellow maintains primary responsibilities providing inpatient consultation-liaison services within a tertiary care children’s hospital and academic medical center, with specialty focus on patients with chronic pain and functional disability concerns.
  • Children’s Health and Illness Recovery Program (CHIRP) - CHIRP is an innovative outpatient program employing and evidence-based manualized intervention for treating adolescents with chronic painful and fatiguing conditions. The fellow is involved in the evaluation and treatment of referrals to this evidence-based intervention, as well as ongoing research assessing treatment efficacy.

In addition to providing clinical and consultation-liaison services, the fellow is involved in research projects associated with both of these clinical activities. Additionally, the fellow participates in individual and group supervision, selected seminars, case conferences and service rounds, and has an opportunity to supervise a doctoral-level practicum student.


This position offers a yearly salary commensurate with NIH guidelines and a travel stipend for conference attendance with benefits to include individual health insurance, malpractice/liability insurance, 20 days vacation/sick leave, free parking and use of computer/audio-visual equipment.


Successful candidates include those with a doctoral degree and internship from APA-accredited programs with evidence of child and adolescent specialization.
