  • About Us

    Hope. Care. Cure. These three simple words capture what we do at Seattle Children’s –- to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

    Our founding promise to the community is as valid today as it was over a century ago: we will care for all children in our region, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research, and serve as the pediatric and adolescent, academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country.


    In 2019, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked Seattle Children’s among the nation's best children's hospitals – for the 27th year in a row. We received national rankings in all 10 specialty areas evaluated by U.S. News & World Report, and are honored to be the only pediatric medical center in Washington to be ranked.


    As a Magnet designated institution, and classified among America’s best large employers by Forbes, we recognize the importance of hiring and developing great talent to provide best-in-class care to the patients and families we serve. Our organizational DNA takes form in our core values: Compassion, Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration, Equity and Innovation. Whether it’s delivering frontline care to our patients in a kind and caring manner, practicing the highest standards of quality and safety, or being relentlessly curious as we work towards eradicating childhood diseases, these values are the fabric of our culture and community. The future starts here.


    This is a one year clinical and research position, with the opportunity to extend to a second year pending available funding. The focus of this postdoctoral fellowship is on ADHD assessment and treatment within the multidisciplinary PEARL Clinic and in primary care, clinical research on ADHD treatment, and assessment and treatment of behavioral sleep problems.


    Start date is July 1 or Sept 1.2020


    Clinical activities (60%) include evaluation and treatment services within the PEARL (Program to Enhance Attention, Regulation, and Learning) Clinic and within a Primary Care pediatric site, with an emphasis on behavioral parent training for ADHD and behavioral sleep problems.  The fellow will also assist with program development for a new collaboration with Seattle Children’s Sleep Medicine clinic, and the fellow will work with the multidisciplinary PEARL team as well as faculty in Pediatrics and Sleep Medicine. 


    Research activities (40%) include participating in the Treating Parents with ADHD and their Children (TPAC) study (NIMH Collaborative R01 grant with the University of Maryland and Children’s National Health System) (PIs: Dr. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano and Dr. Mark Stein). The primary focus of the TPAC study is to test the comparative effectiveness of two different treatment strategies for parents who have ADHD and their young children at risk for ADHD using a hybrid effectiveness-implementation approach. Secondarily, as part of this grant, we will develop an implementation approach for treatment of families with ADHD using telehealth in primary care sites providing pediatric care. Clinical supervision for licensure will be provided.

    - PhD in child clinical psychology from an accredited university training program OR completion of all requirements for PhD or PsyD program including defense of dissertation, and ability to obtain degree within 3 months of hire.
