NJLEND is Now Accepting Applications for the 2020-2021 Program

 

The NJLEND program is now accepting applications from graduate and doctoral level students from Rutgers and RBHS in the following disciplines, as well as family members:

• Dentistry
• Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics
• Genetic Counseling
• Nursing
• Nutrition
• Psychology
• Social Work

• Family is considered a NJLEND discipline. Parents and other family members are encouraged to apply as long-term fellows.

 

  • NJLEND is The Boggs Center’s Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities program, and is part of a national network of LEND programs. NJLEND prepares graduate-level health and allied health fellows to provide high-quality, interdisciplinary, family-centered, culturally competent care addressing the complex needs of children with autism, related disabilities and other maternal and child health populations. All NJLEND fellows are paired with a Faculty Mentor from their discipline who works with the fellow to integrate NJLEND requirements with the requirements of the student’s academic program, as well as to guide and reflect on their individual leadership development throughout the LEND year.

    The long-term NJLEND training program is delivered across a 9-month academic calendar, and fellows are required to commit at least 300 hours to participation. The program can be utilized by students to fulfill a practicum or fieldwork requirement of their academic program. Curricular components of the NJLEND training program included in the 300 hours of participation are:

    • Didactic Seminar Series
    • Experiential Learning Opportunities
    • Leadership Development
    • Clinical Training

    Visit the NJLEND page to learn more about the program, how to apply, and download the application.

    Applications must be received by March 31, 2020. Once the application period has closed, qualified applicants will be invited for an interview.
