Predoctoral Psychology Training Program

Our Clinical Predoctoral Internship Program provides predoctoral training in clinical psychology. The program is accredited by the American Psychological Association. The program is designed to expand trainees’ basic clinical psychology skills, and to provide focused training in rehabilitation psychology and clinical neuropsychology.

Undergraduate Volunteer Program

Through this program, undergraduate volunteers spend time in an office setting performing data entry and submitting medical record requests for all studies. This is a large-scale project involving transfer of medical records onto CD and an electronic database, and preparing and testing databases for screening data on multiple projects. Volunteers may attend presentations, grand rounds, and brain cuttings; and observe neuropsychological testing at the BIRC-MS.

Volunteers will spend at least six hours per week at our center in New York City, and must be available for a minimum of one semester. To apply, please send a brief cover letter, resume, and availability to Elissa Flannery at
