Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Training Programs

Contact: Samuel Zinner, 206-598-3986

Core Function: Professional Training

Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Training Programs provide interdisciplinary custom-tailored training experiences for pediatric residents and medical students from the University of Washington. Trainees participate in a variety of clinical and didactic activities both within CHDD and at community-based clinics to gain skills in evaluating the range of neurological development and behavior in the context of psychosocial influences. Combining developmental and behavioral aspects into the interdisciplinary training approach prepares trainees to integrate both influences as part of their customary surveillance and care.

Pediatric residents spend one month of their three-year training program dedicated to Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics. Each trainee participates in a custom-tailored experience that emphasizes interdisciplinary participation. In addition, trainees explore family-centered care in a medical home model that serves as a foundation for general pediatrics management.

Fourth-year medical students at the University of Washington School of Medicine may opt for two-week or four-week elective rotations in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics. Each trainee participates in a custom-tailored experience that emphasizes interdisciplinary participation and medical home family-centered care.
