Neuropsychology Testing Practicum

The Neuropsychology Service sponsors interns from accredited graduate clinical psychology training programs in Connecticut to participate in specialized training in neuropsychological testing. Training is tailored to the individual needs of the graduate student. However, training generally involves didactics on neuropsychological and psychiatric disorders, as well as training in neuropsychological test administration and scoring, test interpretation, report writing, and clinical skills needed to effectively work with patients referred to the Neuropsychology Service.

Medical School Education

Faculty from the Neuropsychology Service participate in medical school education by providing lectures to medical students, seminars to PGY-I and PGY-II residents, graduate student courses in the Department of Neuroscience, and a specialty training rotation for the Psychiatry Residency Program the "JDH Special." This latter program consists of an immersion in neuropsychological testing techniques and test interpretation to educate future psychiatrists on the usefulness of neuropsychological assessment consultation.
