The Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Research is offered through the Brain Injury Research Center (BIRC) in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, funded in part by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
Our program follows the scientist-practitioner model of training, with the goal of producing graduates skilled in clinical neuropsychology, rehabilitation psychology, and clinical research. Fellows spend at least 50 percent of their time providing clinical services to neuropsychology and rehabilitation psychology patients under the supervision of clinical faculty. The remaining 50 percent of the program is spent engaging in research activities and working closely with our multidisciplinary team of traumatic brain injury (TBI) researchers.
Our fellowship program meets the requirements for licensing as a psychologist in New York State as well as the eligibility requirements for board certification in clinical neuropsychology or rehabilitation psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). Our program has been a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) since 1994.
