The Child Specialisation program is designed to prepare graduates for work in settings that provide clinical services to children, adolescents and their families. The training program is built on the core clinical stream and has been developed through partnerships with staff of the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences at Melbourne's major paediatric service provider, the Royal Childrens' Hospital (RCH).
The staff of the program are senior clinicians with a breadth and depth of clinical and research experience in the child and adolescent area that is unique in Australia. RCH staff contribute core teaching at advanced levels, and provide placement opportunities covering experience in a range of agencies and units within the hospital and in community teams attached to the RCH. There are exciting opportunities for doctoral research in the child and adolescent area in mental health and medical psychological domains through collaborative programs with staff at the Murdoch Childrens' Research Institute, Orygen Youth Services, the Women's and Childrens' Heath Network and the Early Psychosis Intervention Centre.
