MedStar National Rehabilitation Network Psychology Department

Fellowship Programs

The MedStar National Rehabilitation Network Department of Psychology offers two fellowship programs that provide advanced training in 1) Rehabilitation and Pain Psychology and 2) Clinical Neuropsychology. The programs offer a range of clinical training opportunities and educational didactics. During each of the two-year, full-time fellowship programs, training is centered at MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital and focuses on assessment, consultation, and treatment of adult patients with a range of neurological and medical conditions. The programs are designed to be consistent with the pursuit of board certification (ABPP) in rehabilitation psychology and clinical neuropsychology, respectively.

Fellows will have the opportunity to work with MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital’s diverse patient population, in both inpatient and outpatient contexts. Psychologists and fellows serve as an integral part of multidisciplinary rehabilitation teams, working closely with physicians, case managers, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and nurses to assess patient needs, develop treatment goals and recommendations, and provide guidance to patients and their families.

The Psychology Department includes eight neuropsychologists, one pediatric psychologist, and eight psychologists with specialties in rehabilitation, pain, and health. The department is a part of the Medical Affairs division.

The Clinical Neuropsychology fellowship program has graduated ten fellows since beginning in 2008. The program currently has two fellows. We are currently recruiting for one open position for 2020 to 2022.

The Rehabilitation and Pain Psychology fellowship program began in the fall of 2018 and currently has one second-year fellow. We are currently recruiting for a new rehabilitation and pain fellow for 2020 to 2022.
