Children's Hospital training programs in child psychology include:

Psychology Training Stipends

Psychology fellows are employed by the hospital. In past years we have offered  psychology fellow salaries in the range of $38,000 annually. Stipends for 2015-2016 will be announced when hospital budgets are finalized. We offer an excellent package of health, vision, and dental insurance to our fellows.
