How To Apply
We will begin accepting applications on November 1st each year. Applications are due by December 20 of the year prior to when the fellowship begins (e.g. 2023-24 position applications are due December 20, 2022). Applicants are notified of their application status prior to the February meeting of the International Neuropsychological Society (INS). Applicants selected for further consideration will interview with the faculty and psychometrists via zoom on either Wednesday, January 11, or Friday, January 20. Applicants invited for interviews will meet with the neuropsychologists for about 45-60 minutes and then meet with one or more of the psychometrists for approximately 30 minutes.
Our Program participates in the APPCN Match Program. Applicants are provided feedback about their status in accordance with APPCN guidelines. If you are applying to our program and receive a pre-emptive offer from a non-APPCN program, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your ranking with us. We follow all APPCN regulations concerning communication during the match, but these regulations allow us to provide you information about your status with our program.
