Pediatric Psychology: What is it and how can I get involved?

Presenter: Emily Shultz, B.S., Research Assistant at Nationwide Children's Hospital

Pediatric psychology is a field of clinical psychology that focuses on the health and well-being of children and families. Pediatric psychologists can be clinicians, researchers, and/ or mentors, and have an important role in the interdisciplinary medical team. This presentation will focus on the field of pediatric psychology, the clinical issues that children with chronic or acute health conditions face, and the training required to become a pediatric psychologist. The presenter will also discuss the primary duties of a psychology research assistant and how students can find research and volunteer opportunities in the area of healthcare and pediatric psychology. Join us on Thursday, December 3 at 5:30pm in PS 35 to learn more about this field. Please register for this event.
