The University of Colorado School of Medicine, Department of Neurosurgery is offering 2 two-year postdoctoral fellowship positions in Clinical Neuropsychology for the 2022-2024 training cycle.
The fellowship is a member program of APPCN and offers a Major Area of Study in clinical neuropsychology that meets the Houston Conference Guidelines, which have since been adopted by ABCN. Clinical experiences include interviewing and neuropsychological testing, test interpretation and case conceptualization, report writing, consultation to medical professionals, and providing feedback to patients and families. Fellows will also participate in a didactic series dedicated to neuropsychology and a series of case conferences, and optional didactics offered through the departments of neurology and neurosurgery. Our faculty encourages fellows to enter the fellowship program with the end-goal of seeking board certification in clinical neuropsychology through ABPP/ABCN. In an effort to facilitate this, faculty members provide fellows with regular guidance regarding board certification, and a board certification preparation series that includes educational exercises to help fellows become board certified. Opportunities also exist for fellows to participate in clinical research. The faculty hopes that graduates of the program will go on to be active and productive members of the neuropsychology community, and contribute in the areas of clinical service, training, and/or research.
Competitive applicants will hold a Ph.D. or Psy.D. from an APA or CPA accredited program in clinical or counseling psychology, have completed/currently be completing an APA or CPA accredited internship, and have a history of training at the doctoral and internship levels demonstrating that clinical neuropsychology has been a Major Area of Study. The fellowship includes a salary of $53,760 in year one and $54,144 in year two, along with a full benefits package.
