This is an OTD residency opportunity in the Synergy Residencies track.
Synergy in Pediatrics
About the Synergy residencies
This new OTD Residency opportunity will leverage the strengths of two of our missions in the Chan Division. While OTD residencies have historically been offered in one primary area of focus, these new residency opportunities are intentionally constructed to bridge two mission areas and promote synergy between research, practice, and teaching.
About the Synergy in Pediatrics residency
The Synergy in Pediatrics residency will have a dual focus on clinical practice and research.
The residency will be located at Momentum Pediatric Therapy Network (PTN) and at the USC Chan Division. Residents will be mentored by clinical faculty and staff at Momentum PTN with expertise in sensory processing and adaptation and sensory integrative therapies. In the Chan Division, Residents will be mentored by research faculty and staff and participate in research lab activities. Residents may also participate in the larger community for pediatrics and sensory processing through engagement with the sensory processing and autism network (SPAN).
Synergy Residents will be assigned one faculty mentor, but will likely have two preceptors, one from each site of focus. Residents will actively participate in the Chan Division strategic plan implementation team that is focused on building collaborative synergies and knowledge mobilization.
This opportunity offers financial support including 24 units of paid tuition, a paid student worker position, as well as health and dental insurance and the student health center fee.
