Child Health Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Rotation

The developmental rotation will allow the learner to experience a variety of assessment and treatment clinics providing diagnosis and treatment to children ages birth to 18 with neurodevelopmental disorders in the clinic setting.  Learning objectives for this rotation include:


Child Psychiatry Rotation

The Thompson Center Psychiatry clinic provides diagnostic evaluations and pharmacological management to children on the Autism Spectrum up to 18 years old. Medications are monitored through our behavioral medication diary program in which families call a nurse to report any positive or negative changes over the preceding week.

The Thompson Center has a commitment to training Child Psychiatry Fellows about the needs of persons with autism. The Psychiatry Fellows acquire skills to improve the outcomes of individuals with behavioral challenges. These skills include evidence-based assessment, intervention strategies and interdisciplinary approaches to service delivery.


Health Professions Training Programs

The Thompson Center has a long track record of dedication to the training of future allied health professionals across disciplines and levels of education. The Thompson Center provides a rich and diverse opportunity for students and trainees in the School of Health Professions within the Thompson Center’s Division of Health Professions. Trainees obtain supportive and strategic supervision through practica, internship, and post-doctoral levels of training for children with autism, neurodevelopmental, and acquired neuropsychological conditions.
