The Mayo Clinic Neuropsychology Specialty Program provides fellows with a depth and breadth of assessment, educational, consultative, intervention, administrative, and research experiences that result in advanced professional practice competency. We adhere to guidelines proposed by the Joint Task Force of Division 40 of the APA and the Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Psychology. Upon completion of this training specialty, fellows will have an advanced understanding of neuropathologic mechanisms mediating behavioral and cognitive deficits in major categories of neurological disease, a working knowledge of neuropsychological disorders in general medical and psychiatric settings, and will demonstrate rehabilitation skills with neuropsychological disorders. Graduates of our program are eligible for board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology by the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology.
The primary purpose of this specialty program is to provide in-depth assessment, educational, consultative, intervention, and research experiences in clinical neuropsychology, resulting in advanced professional practice competency. We offer two full-time tracks, one in adult neuropsychology and the other in pediatric neuropsychology.
The principal training site is the Psychometric Assessment Laboratory, which evaluates outpatients referred by Mayo Clinic physicians for neurocognitive evaluations.
