A one-year, UCNS-certified clinical fellowship with an emphasis on the neuropsychological, neurobiological and neuropsychiatric aspects of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
The Wake Forest Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (BNNP) Fellowship is a one-year clinical fellowship. Upon completion, fellows will be eligible and prepared for specialty board certification examination in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry through the United Counsel for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS). This fellowship is offered by the Department of Neurology in collaboration with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine. Multiple avenues exist through which fellows can extend their fellowship beyond one year, during which they will spend the majority of their time engaged in research.
A major emphasis of our fellowship is on the neuropsychological, neurobiological and neuropsychiatric aspects of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. There is a close relationship with the Wake Forest Alzheimer's Disease Research Center and the Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer's Prevention. The neuropsychiatry of traumatic brain injury, especially mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is another major emphasis through the Salisbury Veteran's Affairs Medical Center.
Opportunities exist for fellows with particular interests in the behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry of movement disorders, cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.
