Hurley Medical Center & Hurley Children’s Hospital enthusiastically invite applicants to join our growing pediatric psychology team!  Pediatric psychology is a small, but mighty presence in a close-knit team of compassionate and collaborative medical professionals. This full-time, clinically-focused position is embedded within dynamic & warm pediatric healthcare teams across inpatient and outpatient settings.

At Hurley, we celebrate the multicultural identities of individuals and are committed to reducing health disparities, increasing access, and addressing social determinants of health. We aspire to tailor our work to the lived experiences of our patients, and to build teams that are enriched by diversity and reflect the communities we serve. We welcome psychologists who are passionate advocates and allies, as we cultivate environments of belonging, equity, diversity and inclusion.

We are seeking a team-oriented and flexible pediatric psychologist to provide evidence-based, culturally-responsive clinical services to a diverse population of pediatric patients.
