Neuropsychology Epilepsy Fellowship

The post-doctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology is a two-year program that provides advanced training in the theory and practice of neuropsychology with special emphasis in epilepsy. The program combines extensive direct clinical experience with didactic learning and individual supervision to form the basis of a more comprehensive understanding of the cognitive and psychological status of patients with epilepsy. Direct clinical experience includes detailed assessment of cognitive abilities and emotional function, participation in multidisciplinary case conferences, and treatment of cognitive disorders associated with epilepsy. Didactic experiences include a broad range of case conferences, seminars, rounds, and courses offered through Yale Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program. Clinical and basic science research experience is also available through collaboration with the epilepsy program faculty. The neuropsychology program is designed to meet Houston Conference guidelines for advanced training in neuropsychology, and will prepare the fellow for board certification in clinical neuropsychology.
