The Department of Neurology/Division of Neuropsychology at Montefiore Medical Center/ Albert Einstein College of Medicine is seeking an early to mid-career lifespan neuropsychologist to join our team.

The Division of Neuropsychology is currently composed of 5 neuropsychologists/ faculty members, two bilingual/bicultural post-doctoral fellows, and two externship programs (~6 externs a year).   We are a busy division with referrals coming from within the neurology department, as well as from neurosurgery, pediatrics, geriatrics, psychiatry, general medicine, and the community.  We are actively involved with the world renowned Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at Montefiore Medical Center, the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Clinical Care and Research Center, the division of movement disorders at Montefiore, and have a robust multidisciplinary neurodegenerative service at the Montefiore Memory Disorders Center and in our Center for the Aging Brain (CAB) – the clinical site for the Hudson Valley Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s disease (CEAD). Neuropsychologists see patients in our main office on the Moses Campus of Montefiore Medical Center, as well as, at sites elsewhere in the Bronx (East Campus), Yonkers and Tarrytown. The position has flexibility to practice in subspecialty areas based upon the unique interests of the selected candidate.

Primary responsibilities will involve clinical neuropsychological evaluation of children and adults referred for assessment.  A major focus of the position is the ability to assess minority and underserved populations within our catchment area.  Additional responsibilities will include supervision of our neuropsychological fellows and externs, as well as involvement with the planned expansion of neuropsychological services to other adult populations. There are ample opportunities to participate in several thriving research programs, as well as abundant mentorship and teaching opportunities. We also have an active presence in the neurology residency program and this position comes with a faculty appointment within the department of neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine commensurate with the candidate’s experience.

Requirements: A doctorate degree (Ph.D./Psy.D.) in Clinical Neuropsychology or Clinical Psychology with specialization in Neuropsychology; (2) completion of clinical internship; (3) completion of 2 year clinical fellowship in neuropsychology in accordance of the Houston guidelines. Licensure in the State of New York.
Whereas active ABPP board-certification in clinical neuropsychology is not required, the provider is expected to take steps to obtain ABPP board certification in clinical neuropsychology within 5 years of the date of hire.

DELIA SILVA, PSYD, ABPP

Dr. Silva’s parents immigrated from Panama and Chile to the United States, and she was born and raised in melting pot that is New York City. She grew up speaking Spanish at home and feels fortunate to have grown up in an environment where cultural diversity was the norm, not the exception.

During her training to become a neuropsychologist, Dr. Silva was often asked to work with Spanish-speaking patients, though most training sites did not have supervisors who also spoke Spanish or had sufficient cultural knowledge relevant to Latinx populations. She joined HNS as a student and found mentorship and training resources that helped her gain competency in providing neuropsychological services to these patients. Dr. Silva has served on the HNS Board as Member-at-Large (2014-2016) and Secretary (2019-2022). She has also been involved with several committees over the years and is currently serving as the Chair of the Information Technology (IT) Committee. She views HNS as the main organization to promote development of professional resources and scientific advancements in neuropsychology that are specific to Latinx groups; she is honored to help the organization in any way she can. 

Dr. Silva is the owner of Pacific Neurobehavioral Clinic, PC, a group practice in San Diego, California that offers neuropsychological evaluation and psychotherapy services to adults with various neuropsychiatric conditions. She engages in clinical and civil forensic work and oversees the clinic operations.

Educational, training and professional experiences include:

  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology – Florida Institute of Technology
  • Post-doctoral fellowships – Fullerton Neuropsychological Services, St. Jude Medical Center (one year; neurorehabilitation) and University of California San Diego (one year; clinical neuropsychology)
  • Staff neuropsychologist at Sharp Memorial and Grossmont hospitals from 2009-2012
  • Board certified through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) in Clinical Neuropsychology
  • Qualified Medical Evaluator (QME) for the state of California
  • Treasurer and Current Chair of California Psychological Association-Division 8 (Neuropsychology)

In her spare time, Dr. Silva enjoys playing and making music (piano and electronic instruments; she recently took up learning how to play the theremin), playing tennis, karaoke, and spending time with family and friends.
