Charles W. Carl, Jr., MD Fellowship
for Students and Faculty from Native American Colleges and Universities
Program Description: July 13 - July 20, 2013
This intensive one-week program will provide a unique introduction to child development and child mental health for students, with an emphasis on detection, prevention, and treatment of developmental and mental disorders in children. The course will be of greatest interest to students interested in education, nursing and health sciences, social work, psychology, and related professions. We particularly wish to encourage pairs of students and teachers to apply. Students or faculty can also apply independently. A total of 10 persons will be selected to participate. Following a morning of welcome and orientation the student/faculty pairs will be enrolled in one of the following week long training experiences:
• Child Mental Health (inpatient, outpatient)
• In Home Services/Family Support Services and child custody
• Developmental Disabilities (autism, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities)
• Substance Abuse Treatment Approaches
• Early Childhood
• Childhood Trauma/Community Policing
(*applicants interested in topics not mentioned above are invited to suggest them in their application for consideration)
The entire group will meet each day for lunch with a series of faculty speakers providing an overview of the range of research and clinical activities at the Center.
Included in this internship for each student selected will be round trip transportation, lodging at the Courtyard Marriott at Yale (please note two people will be sharing a double occupancy room), and a stipend to cover the cost of meals not provided by the center for the week period. All students will be requested to arrive on Saturday, July 13th.
To apply please click on the application link below and then be sure to click ‘submit’ at the end. In addition, students should send two (2), one-page letters of academic recommendation by email to Mrs. Lori Klein, firstname.lastname@example.org (faculty members need not send recommendations). A resume would also be helpful if you have one, however this is not a requirement.
Interns will be selected and notified by May 13th at which time there will be further information provided to those selected candidates including instructions on arranging travel and information on additional required paper work.
