Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrics Resident Rotation

Pediatric and Family Practice residents receive instruction in developmental and behavioral pediatrics from faculty within MMI.

Residents

  • participate in a variety of clinics and observe numerous assessments by MMI professionals.
  • train to identify and assess common behavioral and developmental problems in children.
  • learn to use a number of different treatment modalities, including empirically derived behavioral procedures and psychopharmacologic interventions.
  • learn how and when to refer a child with a developmental or behavioral problem for subspecialty care.
  • observe child psychologists providing intervention services.
  • have an opportunity to provide hands-on application of behavioral pediatric techniques.

Supplemental reading materials are provided and selected articles are reviewed each week with an advisor. Residents attend MMI's Leadership Seminar Series, Clinical Topics Seminar, and regularly scheduled case conferences. A large selection of videotapes and other audiovisual materials are also available for review.
