Post-Doctoral Fellowship, Neuropsychology at Johns Hopkins All Children's

Training Program and Structure

The Psychology Service is an integral part of the Center for Behavioral Health of the Institute for Brain Protection Sciences at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. As part of the mission of our program, we seek to educate the best and brightest and provide top-notch experiences and supervision, providing skills for independence in an academic medical center. Fellows have access to the Johns Hopkins Welch Medical Library, as well as both Johns Hopkins and Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital ancillary academic materials.

One fellow will be recruited every other year, unless additional funding becomes available. The neuropsychology fellow spends approximately 60 percent of his/her time in clinical services with the option for outpatient therapy, approximately 20 percent of his/her time dedicated to research activities, 10 percent in didactics and 10 percent in professional preparation. Time allotment for licensure and board-certification via the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) preparation are built in to the program, to ensure independent success following the completion of the fellowship.

The program is structured to follow the Houston Conference on training and education in neuropsychology (Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology 1998; 13:157-248.) The program consists of four six-month rotations, with clinical neuropsychological evaluations as the major rotation throughout the two-year period. The fellow will be expected to be on minor rotation with consultation/liaison services, with once monthly on-call schedule lasting one week. In the second year, the fellow is encouraged to develop an area of specialty within neuropsychology, and implement a research plan in the area of choice.

The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neuropsychology is a member of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN), and abides by and respects the standards, procedures and mission of which it endorses. The program participates in the APPCN match. More information is available at appcn.org.
