Training Opportunities

The Neuropsychology Assessment Program is dedicated to training students to understand the clinical responsibilities of a neuropsychologist, to provide didactic educational experiences, and to provide opportunities for assisting in academic research. The positions listed below are non-paid, although these experiences can be done in exchange for course credit if your school permits this.

  • Undergraduate Students-Students receive independent study credit for observational experiences. Students can also participate in neuropsychological research if desired. A year-long commitment is preferred but semester options are available. Hours are flexible.
  • Graduate Students-We accept students from neuroscience, psychology or counseling psychology, seeking either a masters or doctoral degree. Practicum placements are available for students seeking clinical and assessment experience. Students are trained to administer a wide range of psychological and neuropsychological tests (e.g., memory, executive, personality) with diverse patient populations. Didactic and research experiences are also available. Hours are flexible, but the student will need to at least be available for a 3-hour long interval each week.
  • Research Assistantship-For those interested solely in research, we offer two research assistantships throughout the year. Duties include data management, statistical analysis, research development, and writing poster presentations and/or journal manuscripts. We require a 10 hour commitment for this job, preferably for a year, but semester-long opportunities are also available.
