She also serves as the director of rehabilitation neuropsychology within the Department of Neuropsychology at the Institute. She is a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Slomine is a licensed psychologist and board-certified clinical neuropsychologist. She is also a board-certified subspecialist in pediatric neuropsychology.


Dr. Slomine earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Florida in 1995. She completed a psychology internship at the Brockton/West Roxbury Veteran's Administration Medical Center and Harvard University. Dr. Slomine completed a post-doctoral fellowship in geriatric psychology and neuropsychology at the Philadelphia Geriatric Center.


Dr. Slomine’s primary research interests include neurobehavioral measurement, outcomes, and interventions following pediatric brain injury. She has developed and validated innovative measurement tools, examined neuropsychological, neuropsychiatric, and functional outcomes following brain injury, and explored the efficacy of medical and psychological intervention for treatment of brain injury. Dr. Slomine has authored >100 peer-reviewed manuscripts, numerous book chapters, and co-edited a textbook entitled Cognitive Rehabilitation for Pediatric Neurological Conditions.
