There are numerous didactic opportunities available. We hold neuropsychology didactics on a weekly basis, alternating between a neuropsychology topic lecture and journal club/case presentation. The fellows have a heavy involvement in the organization and topic selection for this lecture series to ensure their areas of interest are addressed. Fellows also present regularly for this series.
We offer a monthly Board Preparation series to address the application process for Clinical Neuropsychology boarding through ABPP. This series heavily emphasizes mock fact finding and fellows rotate opportunities to practice the fact finding experience. As a part of this series, we will discuss the application process for Boards and all steps of the credentialing process. We will review ethics as it may be covered during the oral defense and address writing practice samples.
Outside of Neuropsychology, there are also opportunities to participate in Grand Rounds for a number of departments including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Pediatrics, and the developmental research team. Fellows are invited to participate in all didactic opportunities offered to the neurology residents as well as neuropathology (brain cutting) which occurs twice weekly.
