The Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Research is a two-year, full-time program offered through the Brain Injury Research Center (BIRC) within the Department of Rehabilitation and Human Performance at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Our program has been a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) since 1994. The program meets requirements for licensing as a psychologist in New York State and eligibility requirements for board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology and/or Rehabilitation Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). The postdoctoral fellowship is designed to comply with the Houston Conference Guidelines for specialty training in clinical neuropsychology. The program does NOT currently participate in the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) Resident Matching Program and is NOT currently accredited by the APA.
Our program follows the scientist-practitioner model of training, with the goal of producing graduates who have advanced skills in clinical neuropsychology and rehabilitation psychology as applied to a variety of patient populations, as well as strong skills in rehabilitation research. Training consists of didactic and experiential clinical and research training experiences, supervision, and fellows spend approximately 65% of their time providing clinical services to patients, 20% in didactic training, and 15% in research activities.
