The rotation involves providing psychological services to children (and their families) who are hospitalized on the acute psychiatric child inpatient unit at UMMC. The unit provides service for children ages 4-12 who present with a range of psychological problems, including depression, anxiety, conduct problems, ADHD, attachment disorder, as well as pervasive developmental disorders. The typical length of the patient's stay ranges from 1 to 3 weeks. The unit provides an excellent opportunity to observe and work with children with a range of mental illnesses including severe psychopathology. Because this is a short-term inpatient unit, clinical service and experience is acute and short- term. Clinical duties include assessment of children and families, and working with a multidisciplinary team developing treatment plans and appropriate follow-up after discharge. More specifically, the intern would be involved in participating in treatment rounds, conducting psychological assessments, developing behavioral treatment plans for children, and group therapy.
