Neuropsychology Fellowship

Neuropsychology Fellowship

Geisinger’s Neuropsychology Fellowship Program is a two-year training experience designed to provide graduates with the skillset necessary to excel in their future careers as clinical neuropsychologists. This training program is a member of the Academy of the American Board of Professional Neuropsychology and is adherent to Division 40/Houston Conference guidelines for postdoctoral training in clinical neuropsychology. The section of Neuropsychology currently has six full-time faculty members, eight full-time trainees (two predoctoral interns and six postdoctoral residents).

Our faculty are actively engaged in many areas of professional neuropsychological practice (e.g., traditional outpatient assessment, inpatient assessment, memory disorders clinical practice and presurgical assessment) and as such, residents can expect a dynamic and varied training experience. The fellow will gain experience with range of different clinical populations including neurodegenerative disorders, stroke, traumatic brain injury, movement disorders, MS, cognitive impairment secondary to medical illness (e.g., cardiovascular disease, liver, renal and autoimmune diseases), brain tumor, epilepsy and psychiatric disorders.

Traditional outpatient neuropsychological assessment forms the core of the training experience but fellows can also expect exposure to inpatient neuropsychological assessment, assessment within the context of multidisciplinary treatment teams (e.g., movement disorders, epilepsy, tumor board), and within a multidisciplinary memory disorders clinical setting staffed by neuropsychology and behavioral neurology.
