All faculty members are board-certified clinical neuropsychologists and are enthusiastic about providing advanced training opportunities to help future generations of neuropsychologists become board certified and to offer high-quality services, teaching, and research.
Patients are generally referred for a neuropsychological evaluation when there is a concern about cognitive dysfunction. Clinic staff utilize standardized psychological assessment tools to quantify cognitive and psychological strengths and weaknesses in a variety of domains. The results from the evaluation provide clues in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of brain regions and systems, which in turn can provide information about possible etiologic considerations and treatment planning.
Our service commonly sees patients with a variety of conditions including cerebrovascular disorders, organ transplant, movement disorders, epilepsy, dementia, traumatic brain injury, demyelinating disorders, psychiatric disorders, and medical conditions for which there is a cognitive component.
The Adult Clinical Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Residency program is two years of full-time formal training with appropriate clinical, research, and didactics components. It is designed to be a capstone training experience that allows the resident to become an independently licensed practitioner who is eligible for board certification after completing training.
