Training focuses on assessment, treatment, and consultation regarding adult rehabilitation populations with a wide range of injuries, illnesses, disabilities and acute and chronic health conditions. The mission of the training program is to provide experiential education and training in the areas of rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology, as well as exposure to didactic training in these areas, in order to develop skills that will prepare them for predoctoral internships and postdoctoral fellowships in the specialty areas of Rehabilitation Psychology and Neuropsychology.

Externs will provide direct assessment and treatment to rehabilitation inpatients and outpatients, working closely with rehabilitation teams, and will engage in consultation with other health care providers. Externs receive supervision from licensed psychology faculty and postdoctoral fellows. Externs are encouraged to attend weekly didactics and monthly seminars within the Division for Rehabilitation Psychology and Neuropsychology, and the Department of PM&R, to the extent that schedules allow.
