The UBC Department of Psychiatry is inviting eligible candidates to apply for a full-time Fellowship in Eating Disorders.

 

Who the Fellow will work with and what will be the core of their work:

The fellow will work closely with their primary supervisor and multi-disciplinary team members in the eating disorders program including child and adolescent psychiatrists, pediatricians, clinical psychologists, social workers, dietitians, occupational therapists, nursing staff, and research assistants. The fellow will participate in weekly rounds and will have opportunities for involvement in assessment, treatment, community consultation, teaching and/or research. The program works collaboratively with the BC Children’s Hospital Division of Adolescent Health and Medicine (Department of Pediatrics), and has strong partnerships with community eating disorders programs and the Looking Glass Residence (residential eating disorders treatment facility in Vancouver for youth ages 16-24).

 

Details of the clinical/research training experience:

Clinical training experiences include multi-disciplinary diagnostic assessments, as well as individual, family and group-based treatment approaches for eating disorders in outpatient and inpatient treatment settings. The program provides family-based therapy for eating disorders, in addition to other psychotherapeutic approaches including enhanced cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT-E), cognitive remediation therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy.

 

Fellows with a background in pediatrics/family medicine will have the opportunity to gain expertise in acute medical management and stabilization of children and youth with eating disorders.

 

The Eating Disorders Program also has an active research team, with a variety of on-going research studies focused on predictors of treatment outcome in children and youth with eating disorders.
