Clinical Behavioral Neuroscience Education

The Division of Clinical Behavioral Neuroscience offers an internship and fellowship programs.

Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship

Directed by Andrew J. Barnes, MD, MPH, the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship, which is accredited by the ACGME Residency Review Committee for Pediatrics and includes the American Board of Pediatrics, is a citywide training program jointly sponsored by the University of Minnesota Medical School and collaborating community sites. Strengths of the program include its longevity as one of the longest-running DBP programs nationally; its outstanding ties both to the broad community and to allied disciplines within the University of Minnesota; and the breadth and depth of leadership, research, and teaching opportunities offered by these collaborations. Our fellows are highly sought-after, and go on to obtain excellent positions both within academia and the private sector.

Pediatric Psychology Program

The Pediatric Psychology Program focuses on the developmental and psychological aspects of child care. Staff assess developmental disorders, provide consultation to pediatricians, practitioners and parents, and promote the healthy adjustment and successful coping of patients and families.

Pediatric Neuropsychology Fellowship

The Pediatric Neuropsychology unit of the Division of Behavioral Neuroscience provides a diagnostic service for children with complex learning and behavioral disorders, both neurological and neurodevelopmentalin etiology. Children are referred by schools, clinics, practitioners in the community, and medical staff at this hospital. This unit serves the community, state, five-state area, and for specific disease entities, the entire country. The clinical orientation of the faculty is developmental. Our approach to neuropsychology is to integrate knowledge from neuropsychological testing with data from neurological, imaging, neurophysiological, and laboratory studies to quantity functional deficits in the context of the central nervous system using a developmental framework.
