Clinical Neuropsychology Residency

The Clinical Neuropsychology program at Indiana University School of Medicine is designed to prepare trainees for ABPP-ABCN board certification. This program has a long-standing affiliation with the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) and follows an apprenticeship-type model for clinical training that involves both inpatient and outpatient settings. The program is staffed by 11 neuropsychology experts (seven in the adult-track and four in the pediatric-track). Through a collaboration with IU Health, the program is based in the Neuroscience Center and Riley Hospital for Children.

Training includes a dedicated core lecture series that covers all neurobehavioral syndromes, clinical neurology, clinical psychiatry and a multitude of disorders. Lectures are delivered by core faculty and guest physician lecturers. Trainees gain experience in providing supervision to psychology graduate students and interns.

Apprenticeship Model

Supervision

Training follows the apprenticeship model, with residents assuming greater clinical autonomy as experience increases. Early on, the resident observes faculty conducting evaluations. As competence progresses, the resident leads the interview and staffs the case with faculty. The faculty member offers input as needed, and the evaluation continues under the direction of the resident. The resident drafts a report, which is finalized with supervision. The faculty member observes the resident’s feedback to the patient, family, and referral source.

Evaluation

Formal reviews occur at months six, 12 and 24 of the program. Residents complete an activity log for clinical service and didactic attendance. Each clinical supervisor rates the resident’s knowledge base and professional practice on structured rating forms. The training director meets with the resident to review the activity log and faculty ratings at each evaluation point.
