Postdoctoral Neuropsychology Fellowship
The Neuropsychology Fellowship began at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) in 1986 for advanced trainees in clinical psychology. Over the last 20 years it has evolved into a major collaborative, post-doctoral training program with the Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and the Harvard Medical School. With the integration of MMHC into the Department of Psychiatry at BIDMC, the program now entails clinical rotations in the Psychiatry (including MMHC) and Neurology (specifically in the Behavioral Neurology Unit) Departments at BIDMC, an extensive series of seminars, and multiple opportunities for research. Components of the Fellowship and application information are summarized below.
- The Fellowship is for one year, but a second year is available and encouraged
- Three evaluations per week
- Three to four hours per week of supervision, with different supervisors in the different rotations. Each trainee also has a Training Director.
- Didactics, described below.
- Fellows are employed by BIDMC, and receive benefits (e.g. medical) associated with their employment at the hospital. The Fellowship also carries an appointment as a Clinical Fellow in the Department of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School.
