Dr. Slomine is a licensed psychologist and board certified clinical neuropsychologist. She is also a board certified subspecialist in pediatric neuropsychology.  

Biographical Sketch: 

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 serves on the board of directors for the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology and serves as an oral examiner for the clinical neuropsychology board certification examination process. Dr. Slomine is also the associate editor for Rehabilitation Psychology and serves on the editorial board for Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation and Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology.

Research Summary: 

Dr. Slomine’s primary research interests include measurement of outcome following brain injury as well as exploring factors that influence outcome following neurological injury. Specifically, Dr. Slomine has developed and validated innovative measurement tools, examined neuropsychological and neuropsychiatric outcomes following brain injury, and explored the efficacy of medical and psychological intervention for treatment of brain injury. She is currently a co-investigator for a multi-center clinical trial examining outcome in children who receive hypothermia treatment following cardiac arrest. She is also currently exploring measurement and outcomes in children with brain injury who are in a minimally conscious state.
