The neuropsychology service of MedStar National Rehabilitation Network, within the Georgetown Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, offers a fellowship in neuropsychology for qualified doctoral level psychologists. The fellowship is a two-year program providing advanced training in neuropsychological assessment, consultation, and treatment of adults with a range of neurologic illnesses, including TBI, aneurysm, stroke, dementia, brain tumors, and other systemic illnesses. The program is designed to prepare fellows for pursuit of board certification in clinical neuropsychology.
Training rotations include the inpatient brain injury and stroke rehabilitation programs, brain injury day treatment, and outpatient evaluation and treatment services. Didactic experiences are provided through in-house seminars as well as participation in a multi-site, nation-wide video-teleconference program involving approximately nine sites. The fellowship is primarily clinical but fellows are encouraged to become involved in research during their tenure.
Eligible applicants must have a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology and completed an APA or CPA accredited internship. Each year we bring on one new candidate so there is always a first and a second year fellow in the program. Applications are accepted in October-December and interviews conducted at the INS conference in February. The fellowship start date is in September each year.
