Research

Many of our faculty are involved in research within their programs of clinical interest and in collaboration with other departments within the hospital and with sites across the country.

Recent studies have included clinical research focused on outcomes and factors impacting treatment success in preschoolers with disruptive behaviors, needs of bariatric surgery patients, psychological outcomes in patients with Disorders of Sexual Differentiation, outcomes of behavioral intervention with acutely and chronically ill preschoolers, quality of life in end stage renal disease,. Faculty routinely publish their findings in peer-reviewed journals and present their research at national and international conferences. 

Many of our faculty are involved in research in collaboration with other departments within the hospital and with sites across the country and internationally. Trainees at all levels are encouraged to participate in research activities.
