Clinical Neuropsychology Residency

Clinical Neuropsychology Residency

The Department of Psychiatry offers a two-year residency in clinical neuropsychology, designed to prepare residents for independent practice and ABPP-ABCN board certification. The program was founded in 1997 and has been APPCN-affiliated since 2004. The program is staffed by adult and pediatric faculty, appointed across the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology, functioning collectively within the discipline of neuropsychology. It is comprised of an Adult Track and Pediatric Track, with residents sharing workspace areas, attending lifespan neuropsychology didactics together and jointly participating in the program’s professional development series.

The neuropsychology program is located at the IU Health Neuroscience Center, which is part of the larger IU Health campus in downtown Indianapolis. Most outpatient and didactic activities occur at this location, with pediatric residents completing multidisciplinary rotations at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.
