The mission of pediatric psychology is to provide high quality, evidence-based psychological care to our patients, which includes comprehensive psychological evaluations, integrated behavioral health services, outpatient treatment and intervention and autism evaluations.
In addition to that, our mission is also to increase the understanding of pediatric psychology within the medical school and to train psychology interns, residents and medical students in the concepts of pediatric psychology.
Pediatric psychology provides services for and training for all mental health diagnoses including academic, learning, and behavior. We offer a team-based approach to patient care.
