Within the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, two-year research fellowships in rehabilitation research are available for newly graduated psychologists. The number of fellowships awarded each year is dependent on grant funding availability. Training combines 80% time in research activities within the Department's Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai and 20% time in clinical experiences with individuals with brain injury.
Fellows are involved in ongoing research activities of the Center, participate in research training seminars on qualitative and evidence based methodologies, statistical programming and grant writing, and attend a weekly planning/administrative meeting of the Center. Under mentoring, each fellow completes an independent research project, presents findings at conferences for professionals and prepares findings for publication. At minimum, two hours of individual supervision is provided weekly.
The fellowship meets requirements of the American Boards of Clinical Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Psychology as well as state licensure.
