Neuropsychology 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).

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.

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.
