Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellowship

Overview

The Division of Pediatric Neuropsychology at Children’s National Medical Center offers two-year, full-time postdoctoral fellowships in neuropsychology. Typically, there are three openings each year. While all three positions include broad training in pediatric neuropsychology, two of the positions allow for additional specialization in autism spectrum disorders or mTBI/ concussion. The postdoctoral training program at Children's National belongs to the Association for Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN), and is therefore designed to meet the criteria set forth by the Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology. We participate in the APPCN match program, and all applicants must register with the National Matching Service. Upon completion of the fellowship, trainees will have gained the necessary clinical and research skills for independent practice in pediatric neuropsychology, as well as the knowledge base to pursue board certification in clinical neuropsychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP-Cn).

Postdoctoral fellows complete comprehensive outpatient neuropsychological evaluations with a range of patient populations, including children and adolescents with medical diagnoses and those with neurodevelopmental disorders. Training opportunities also include rotations through the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders, SCORE program, Executive Function Clinic, Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Program, and hematology-oncology. Postdoctoral fellows participate in formal didactics and professional development opportunities such as experience providing supervision to pre-doctoral trainees. Residency positions are funded for at least 20% research time. Current research projects include concussion/ mild Traumatic Brain Injury, autism spectrum disorders, epilepsy, and neurofibromatosis.

Please see the linked brochure for a description of the positions currently available.  Interested individuals may also contact Dr. Laura Kenealy for more information at 301-765-5430 or e-mail npsypdoc@childrensnational.org.
