Residency Program in Clinical Neuropsychology
The Division of Neuropsychology offers two-year postdoctoral residencies in child and adult neuropsychology. The residency program begins and ends around the first of July. The purpose of the training program is to provide doctoral level psychologists with sufficient clinical and research competencies to practice independently in the specialty of clinical neuropsychology. Our postdoctoral training program is a member of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN; The Clinical Neuropsychologist, 1993, 7, 197-204) and adheres to the Houston Conference (HC) standards (Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, 1998, 13, 160-166) for specialty training in clinical neuropsychology.
It is a goal for graduates of our program to be eligible for licensure and certification in clinical neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology. Our postdoctoral residency program in adult and child clinical neuropsychology is accredited by the American Psychological Association’s Commission on Accreditation (address: 750 1st Street NE Washington, DC 20002 202-336-5979).
Clinical training is divided into adult and child tracks, and residents are recruited to one or the other.
