Lovick C. Miller Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellowship

The Lovick C. Miller Post-Doctoral Psychology 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.

Overview of Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellowship

The postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology is a 1-year training program that begins after the doctorate degree is earned. There is direct involvement in clinical programs at Norton Children’s Hospital.

Pediatric Consultation-Liaison (C/L) Service to Norton Children’s Hospital - The fellow’s primary clinical responsibility is to provide inpatient C/L services within a tertiary care children’s hospital and academic medical center. The fellow will serve a wide variety of youth with acute and chronic medical conditions (e.g., epilepsy, migraines, chronic pain, cystic fibrosis, GI difficulties), as well as psychiatric concerns (e.g., anxiety, depression). The fellow will work closely within a multi-disciplinary team, including psychologists, psychiatrists, hospitalists, and other subspecialty providers (e.g., neurology, pulmonology, rehab services, social work, expressive therapy, and more). The fellow typically carries a caseload of patients for outpatient therapy that are commonly individuals that have been seen by the C/L Service.  The fellow is also involved in the Children’s Health and Illness Recovery Program (CHIRP), an evidence-based intervention for adolescents with chronic health conditions and their families.  Research opportunities may be available. Primary C/L attending psychologists include Dr. Courtney Gianinni and Dr. Megan Millmann.

Supervision/Didactics - The fellow will participate in weekly supervision, selected seminars, case conferences, medical team meetings, and service rounds. 

Requirements - Successful candidates will have a doctoral degree and internship from APA-accredited training programs with evidence of pediatric psychology and child and adolescent specialization.
