Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellowship

MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital
Start Date: September 2014
Application Deadline: Dec. 31, 2013 

The Medstar National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) in Washington, D.C., invites applicants for our two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship program in Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation, beginning in September 2014. One position is currently available. The fellowship program provides advanced training in neuropsychological assessment, consultation, and treatment of adult patients with a range of neurologic illnesses, including traumatic brain injury, stroke, aneurysms, brain tumors, dementia and other systemic illnesses. 

Fellows also participate in the NRH Concussion Program. Opportunities are provided to receive training with other rehabilitation populations as well. Training opportunities include rotations through the inpatient brain injury and stroke rehabilitation programs, outpatient day treatment programs, and outpatient neuropsychological consultation and intervention. A broad range of patient populations are seen, with strongest concentration on the brain injury and stroke programs. Didactic experiences are provided through in-house seminars as well as participation in a multi-center video-teleconference-based program. This is primarily a clinical training program, though fellows are encouraged to pursue research opportunities. The program is designed to be consistent with requirements for attaining ABPP-CN certification. 

Applicants must have a doctorate in psychology from an accredited program, completed prior to the start of the fellowship, and have completed an APA or CPA accredited clinical psychology internship. Applicants should also have strong training and clinical experience in neuropsychology during graduate school and internship. The training faculty consists of seven neuropsychologists, and our department also includes medical/health psychologists. There are two current post-doctoral fellows in the program. The start date will be in September 2014. 

NRH is part of MedStar Health and is affiliated with Georgetown University Hospital and Medical School. MedStar NRH is listed in U.S. News & World Report as one of the top rehabilitation hospitals in the country. Life in the nation's capital offers many rich leisure, intellectual, and cultural opportunities. The Psychology Service of the Medstar National Rehabilitation Hospital is a progressive and expanding service with a commitment to academic and clinical excellence and professional development.
