Education of the next generation of physicians and psychologists is a priority for our program. This includes education for graduate students, medical students, residents and postdoctoral associates/fellows in the Medical and Child Development programs. As one of the only rotations in the country that teaches about early trauma and recovery, the need to increase education in this area is essential to spread knowledge about this underserved population. Our long-term goal is to continue collaborations around the world and to build a world class, accessible program that can reach vulnerable children within our scope- an innovative center with additional mental health, clinical care, rehabilitative services and integrative medicine services for children with early trauma, early malnutrition, prenatal exposures and transitions.


Residents & Postdoctoral Fellows/Associates

Currently we are offering an elective rotation for residents and postdoctoral fellows/associates within or associated with the University of Minnesota. Interested in working on a multidisciplinary team and learning more about how to care for those who have experienced early childhood adversities? Contact your program coordinator to assist in scheduling a rotation at our clinic! Please note, clinics occur on Monday morning and all day Wednesday. Observation in clinic is a requirement for this elective, so it is important that your schedule has availability on Mondays and Wednesdays to allow for observation during this rotation. For more information about this rotation, please contact us at


Medical & Graduate Students

For medical and graduate students we offer opportunities to observe our team in clinic.
