Our Clinical Neuropsychology Residency Program began in 1997 with a mission to educate and train doctoral-level psychologists in brain-behavior relationships and the competent and ethical practice of clinical neuropsychology. Our residency has been APPCN-affiliated since 2004 and is staffed by 7 faculty neuropsychologists (4 adult, 3 pediatric, 6 ABCN board certified) from the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology. Clinical training follows an apprenticeship-type model and involves both outpatient and inpatient settings. Didactic experiences occur throughout training. Residents have the opportunity to develop a scholarly project for presentation internally or at national meetings. Research opportunities are available through several ongoing projects.
Our Medical Center
Indiana University School of Medicine has partnered with Indiana University Health (IU Health) to create a not-for-profit, comprehensive health care system that operates 19 hospitals and staffs over 3,500 physicians statewide[bcm1] . Our residents see patients in these Indianapolis-based IU Health facilities which have been ranked in the top 1% of hospitals nationally by US News and World Report: Methodist Hospital, Riley Hospital for Children, and University Hospital. In addition, residents on the adult track have exposure to patients at Indianapolis’ city-county hospital, Eskenazi Health. The IU Health partnership provides a rich training environment for our residents.
