The Department of Neuropsychology at Kennedy Krieger Institute offers postdoctoral residency training opportunities in pediatric neuropsychology.
Through exposure to diverse patient populations in a variety of settings, we aim to develop clinical competencies that prepare graduating residents for board certification in clinical neuropsychology and to practice competently in a wide range of settings.
The residency program at Kennedy Krieger Institute endorses the Houston Conference guidelines for training in clinical neuropsychology. As such, we support board certification in clinical neuropsychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) as the standard of competency in clinical neuropsychology and the scientist-practitioner model of training. As a participating member of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN), our two-year training program adheres to the APPCN guidelines for residency programs in clinical neuropsychology, and participates in the APPCN residency matching program each year. This residency site agrees to abide by the APPCN policy that no person at this facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any residency applicant.
Residents spend approximately 70 percent of their time delivering clinical services and 30 percent on didactic learning and research experiences.
Our program offers clinical training experiences with a wide range of patient populations from birth through young adulthood. Children and adolescents are served within diverse settings throughout the Institute, including our outpatient specialty clinics, the Rehabilitation Continuum of Care, and other interdisciplinary settings, such as Kennedy Krieger School Programs and the Center for Autism Services, Science and Innovation (CASSI™, formerly known as the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, or CARD).
Residents complete six four-month major rotations with experiences in our outpatient specialty clinics, the Rehabilitation Continuum of Care, and additional interdisciplinary settings.
