Pediatric Neuropsychology Residency Program: Additional Training Opportunities

Interdisciplinary Training:

Support from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities) program has allowed us to create and maintain an interdisciplinary training model. Neuropsychology residents are part of that group, which includes pediatrics, social work, occupational and physical therapy, speech-language pathology, nutrition, neurology, physiatry, psychiatry, education, and audiology. Our residents also actively participate in a structured series of seminars, rounds, and clinics. In order to provide comprehensive interdisciplinary training, all trainees complete an individualized training plan (ITP).

Didactic Experiences:

Neuropsychology trainees participate in a wide range of didactic seminars and grand rounds, both at Kennedy Krieger Institute and through The Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine and Public Health. Primary didactic training in pediatric neuropsychology is achieved through a weekly series of seminars, including:

  • Neuropsychology Seminar
  • Professional Development Series
  • Neuropsychology Case Conference
  • Developmental Neuroradiology Conference
  • Pediatric Neurology Grand Rounds

See our listing of weekly training opportunities and schedule of neuropsychology seminars and professional development events:

Research:

Postdoctoral residents are provided with opportunities to participate in or develop their own research project within the fields of neuropsychology or neurodevelopmental disabilities. While our fellowship is primarily a clinical experience, residents also have the opportunity to present research at a national and international meeting, and most have at least one peer-reviewed paper in press by the end of the residency. Research opportunities are available through the mentorship of faculty members and researchers throughout the Kennedy Krieger and Johns Hopkins research community.
