Psychology Post-Doctoral Residency

To read more about BRAINS Postdoctoral Residency Program, please click here.

Approved Post-Doc by the American Board of Professional Neuropsychology (ABN) https://aabnonline.com/aabn-programs.html

The Postdoctoral Residency (Fellowship) in Neuropsychology through BRAINS is the equivalent of two years of full-time education and training designed to conform to the guidelines developed by the American Board of Professional Neuropsychology including a minimum of 4,000 training hours.

Principal mentors/supervisors are employed at BRAINS. Training opportunities with psychologists outside of the neuropsychology specialization are available, as well. Interactions with other clinical specialties are routinely integrated, as BRAINS is a multidisciplinary clinic.

BRAINS has been training Residents since 2008. Our goal is to provide advanced training for psychologists specializing in neuropsychology who intend to earn Board Certification in Neuropsychology, ABPP, and to practice in neuropsychology. Our graduates have gone on to practice in the field of neuropsychology.

Our Program offers a number of opportunities for learning. There are multiple neuropsychologists within the program at different phases of their careers. BRAINS has professionals who primarily focus on counseling individuals, occupational and speech therapy, groups, technology models such as biofeedback or virtual reality, applied behavior analysis, and forensic work. BRAINS provides evaluations to individuals throughout the lifespan, but we have a strong reputation for specialization in pediatrics. Cases vary from symptoms complicated by prenatal exposure, trauma, ASD, developmental conditions, medical and mental health factors, memory and a variety of other concerns that may result in the need to pursue an evaluation.

We are actively involved in communicating diagnostic results to physician’s offices and schools, addressing the broad psychosocial needs of patients and families. Our program is uniquely interested in the integration of data, effective personalization of findings, and customized treatment planning.

About 80% of the Residents’ time is spent in the delivery of clinical services. Educational and training experiences and research activities account for the other 20%.

To apply, please send a letter of professional goals, a current curriculum vitae, two redacted psychological report samples, and three letters of reference (preferably two clinical supervisors and one academic/research mentor) to:
