The Neuropsychology Department of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta offers a two-year, full-time postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology. The training program is a member of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (ABPP/CN) and is designed to meet criteria set forth by the Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology guidelines.
The Pediatric Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Program builds competency in the assessment and treatment of children who have a wide range of central nervous system and developmental disorders, while providing opportunities to pursue research interests. The patient population ranges from newborns to young adults. Upon completion of the program, fellows will have gained the necessary clinical and research skills required for independent practice and academic pursuits in pediatric neuropsychology. They will also obtain the necessary experiences required to pursue board certification.
The Children's neuropsychology team
The Children’s Department of Neuropsychology include 13 neuropsychologists, seven of whom are certified through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP/CN), and four pediatric psychologists that work with patients in rehabilitation. Remaining staff are in the process of pursuing board certification through ABPP/CN.
The fellows’ training is divided across clinical, research, supervision/professional development and didactics. Fellows complete four six-month rotations comprising primary and secondary rotations, in addition to ongoing clinical experiences.
