The UNC Clinical Neuropsychology Fellowship Training Program provides high-quality advanced training in the science and practice of clinical neuropsychology. Our program is comprised of clinical, didactic, and research experiences available at UNC and its affiliates. This fellowship meets Houston Criteria guidelines for board-certification in clinical neuropsychology, and past graduates have achieved board-certification.

This post-doctoral fellow will work under the direct supervision of our licensed (most board-certified) neuropsychologists to evaluate and treat adolescents and adults with neurological injuries or illnesses, other chronic health issues, physical and cognitive disabilities, psychiatric diagnoses, and developmental disorders. We see patients with a wide variety of diagnoses, including traumatic brain injury, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, mild cognitive impairment and dementias, autoimmune disease, cancer, and COVID-19.

Opportunities for participation in clinical research and development of individual interests are also provided. The fellow will assist with instructing psychology practicum students and predoctoral interns in administration, scoring, and interpretation of psychological and neuropsychological tests; perform clinical interviews; administer, score, and interpret neuropsychological tests under direct supervision; prepare reports for the medical record; provide patient, family, and faculty and staff education; assist with literature reviews, statistical analyses, administrative clinical support, and other research-related activities; and conduct behavioral health interviews and limited psychotherapy for rehabilitation patients.
