Hartford Hospital/The Institute of Living is pleased to announce that we will be accepting applications for a 2-year fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology for the 2012-2014 training period.  We have openings for 2 fellows.  Applications are due on December 15th, 2011.

The residency program adheres to the training guidelines established by the American Psychological Association (APA, Division 40; Clinical Neuropsychology), the International Neuropsychological Society (INS), the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN, Member), and the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). The two-year training position focuses on neuropsychological assessment and additionally requires the residents to provide psychotherapy for two medical patients.  Training takes place in both the psychiatric environment of The Institute of Living as well as the general medical setting of Hartford Hospital.  Postdoctoral fellows will be exposed to and assist with awake craniotomies, WADA testing, inpatient assessments of acute medical conditions (stroke, tumor, traumatic brain injury, cardiac failure and transplant), inpatient psychiatric assessments, as well as outpatient assessments of a wide range of neurological and/or psychiatric disorders (dementia, TBI, stroke, LD, MS, Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia).  While the emphasis of training is on adult/geriatric populations, opportunities do exist for those interested in gaining experience working with children and adolescents.  There is also an emphasis on research and residents will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing research or conduct independent research projects.

Finally, we are actively recruiting for a bilingual applicant.  Hartfords population is 41% Latino according to the 2010 US Census data and a large percentage of our patients are Spanish-speaking only.  Opportunities exist for bilingual fellows to obtain training and supervision in the evaluation of Spanish speakers by one of our bilingual staff.
