Applicant requirements

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

Tobacco-free hiring policy

To help preserve and improve the health of our patients, their families and our employees, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has a tobacco-free hiring policy. This policy applies to all candidates for employment (other than those with regularly scheduled hours in New Jersey) for all positions, including those covered by the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Job applicants who apply after July 1, 2014 will be expected to sign an attestation stating they’ve been free of nicotine or tobacco products in any form for the prior thirty (30) days. They will also undergo a cotinine test as a part of the Occupational Health pre-placement drug screen administered after the offer of employment has been accepted but before the first day of hire.

Exemptions: Attending physicians (excluding CHOP physicians in the Care Network), psychologists, principal investigators and/or Penn-based faculty are exempt from this process to better align with our colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.

How to apply

To apply for a fellowship position, applicants must submit:

One application packet is sufficient to apply for all available fellowship positions. Electronic versions of the application are required. Please send electronic materials via e-mail to psychologytraining@email.chop.edu. Questions can be directed to this address or to the faculty mentor of the position(s) in which you are interested. Applicants should specify the fellowship position(s) to which they are applying in their cover letter.
