Clinical Service - Adult Track

Our residents on the adult track see patients in three outpatient locations.  Two are traditional outpatient neuropsychology clinics (one based in the Department of Psychiatry and the other in the Department of Neurology) receiving referrals from clinical departments within IU Health and the surrounding community.  These patients have a range of conditions including concussion/traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer disease, Lewy Body disease, frontotemporal degeneration, multiple sclerosis, stroke, brain tumor, brain infection, epilepsy, occupational exposures, cancer, chronic kidney disease, and psychiatric disorders.  In addition, our residents will help to staff a primary clinic serving disadvantaged older adults at Eskenazi Health.  Residents will have direct roles in clinical interview, testing, report writing, and feedback to patient, family, and referral source. 

Residents on our adult track will also get experience with inpatient consultations from medical, surgical, and psychiatric services.  Across all sites, residents should expect to see between 3-5 consultations per week.  Supervising faculty:  Fred Unverzagt, David Kareken, Dan Rexroth, and Gwen Sprehn.

 

Clinical Service - Pediatric Track

Our residents on the pediatric track see children and adolescents in outpatient and inpatient locations via the Department of Neurology.  A range of referral sources (pediatric neurology and psychiatry, oncology, developmental pediatrics, genetics, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation) and disorders are encountered including:  seizures/epilepsy, concussion/traumatic brain injury, stroke, cancer (brain tumor, leukemia, lymphoma), chromosomal abnormalities, spina bifida, neurofibromatosis, transplant, learning disability, and ADHD.  In addition, residents have the opportunity to work with preschool aged children and see inpatient evaluations on the Rehabilitation Unit at Riley Hospital for Children.
