Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology and Brain Imaging Research
Training Director: Laura A. Flashman, PhD, ABPP-CN
Associate Director: Robert M. Roth, PhD, ABPP-CN
The Neuropsychology Program at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center/Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth provides advanced training in clinical neuropsychology. The training model and objectives conform to the Houston Conference guidelines for specialty training in clinical neuropsychology, the APA Division 40 guidelines for postdoctoral training in neuropsychology, and the APPCN domains and standards. The program is a member of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN).
The overarching goal of the fellowship program is preparation for advanced practice in clinical neuropsychology. It is our intention to produce outstanding scientist-practitioners who are rigorously trained with a broad-based foundation in assessment, intervention, consultation, and research. To achieve these ends, the fellowship involves:
- Supervised neuropsychological service delivery to a wide range of patient populations. Each fellow has a minimum of two Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth faculty neuropsychology supervisors for individual supervision. Additional group supervision provides fellows the opportunity to interact with faculty and interdisciplinary teams.
- An organized sequence of educational experiences, including seminars and colloquia on clinical neuropsychology, clinical research, and professional development.
- Active participation by fellows in ongoing clinical research. Instruction occurs through conferences, seminars, individual and group supervision, and day-to-day collaboration with faculty and other staff members.
- The fellowship provides continuous evaluation and feedback. Periodic meetings with the individual's supervisors and the program director offer more structured, mutual evaluation and opportunities to discuss professional development issues.
