Clinical Programs

A fellow in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP) participates in a variety of clinical programs and settings covering the broad range of developmental-behavioral disorders of childhood and adolescence.  In general, he or she will hone skills in neuro-developmental assessment and use these skills seeing patients in his or her own clinic and as part of interdisciplinary teams. Individual and group precepting by one of the DBP faculty will allow for enhanced learning and generalization of information, skills, and attitudes, for further application to related clinical, research, and teaching roles of the DBP subspecialty resident.
