As one of the nation’s leading pediatric health care systems, Nemours is committed to providing all children with their best chance to grow up healthy. We offer integrated, family-centered care to more than 300,000 children each year in our pediatric hospitals, specialty clinics and primary care practices in Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Nemours strives to ensure a healthier tomorrow for all children – even those who may never enter our doors – through our world-changing research, education and advocacy efforts. At Nemours, our Associates help us deliver on the promise we make to every family we have the privilege of serving: to treat their child as if they were our own.
We are excited to continue our expansion of pediatric psychology specialty care services at Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children and are seeking a psychologist to complement our current team. The psychologist will participate in the department’s clinical, academic, and educational activities.
Nemours is dedicated to providing services to a diverse population, many of whom in the greater Wilmington area and downstate are Spanish-speaking. We are seeking a Spanish-speaking pediatric psychologist who has experience working with a wide array of patient populations in a medical setting including endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, neurology, and cardiology, to name but a few. While it would be desirable for the candidate to develop an area of focused expertise, we are seeking an individual who can work with Spanish-speaking families across illness populations. Similar to other positions posted, the psychologist will work with interdisciplinary teams in medical clinics and provide inpatient consultation-liaison services, outpatient psychological services, and psychological assessment.
In addition to meeting the needs of patients and families, the psychologist will work with hospital-wide initiatives to improve care for and reduce health disparities in the Spanish-speaking community. Moreover, the psychologist will further the development of cultural competence within the division and provide staff and student trainings, develop trainees who are Spanish-speaking, and provide supervision for Master’s-level and doctoral level trainees.
Candidates must possess a doctoral degree in psychology with focused training in pediatric psychology or clinical child psychology from an APA-approved clinical psychology program, an Internship from an APA-approved site, and at least one year of post-doctoral experience in a medical setting. Candidates should be licensed or license-eligible in Delaware.
APPLICATION: Please send a letter of interest and CV to WLMBH-DMRecruitment@Nemours.org and please state the position name in the subject line. Applications currently are being reviewed and will be accepted until the positions are filled.
Questions about the positions should be directed to Dr. Anthony Alioto, Clinical Director of Integrated Pediatric Psychology Specialty Care at Anthony.Alioto@Nemours.org

Nemours is committed to improving the health of children. As a non-profit children’s health organization, we consider the health of every child to be a sacred trust. Through family-centered care in our children’s hospitals and clinics in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida, as well as world-changing research, education and advocacy, Nemours fulfills the promise of a healthier tomorrow for all children — even those who may never enter our doors.

Today, through our children’s hospitals and health system, we directly care for 250,000 children annually in Delaware Valley and Florida, including families who travel from across the country and world to see our specialists — treating every child as we would our own. We also reach beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics to be a voice for children on a national and international level, and to lead the way in prevention, intervention, education, and research. Nemours is growing to better serve the children and families in our ca...re. We have 1.1 million square feet of space currently devoted to providing children’s healthcare or under construction, all designed with significant input and advice from our patients and families.
