Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pediatric Neuropsychology


The Division of Neuropsychology, within the Neurology Department at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, is NOT accepting applications for one postdoctoral Pediatric Neuropsychology Fellowship position to begin in September 2020. Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is ranked #16 in Children’s Neurology in US World and News Report.
This two year fellowship is designed to meet the criteria set forth by the Houston Conference Policy Statement on education and training. The goal of the program is to prepare the fellow for a career as a scientist-practitioner in pediatric neuropsychology.
Although not yet an APPCN program, NCH is participating in the match process through the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN).


Our Program

Fellows will be involved in clinical activities including extensive clinical training in evaluation of patients with a broad range of neurological disorders seen in pediatric patients including epilepsy, neuro-oncology, neuro-cardiology, autism spectrum disorders, neuro-genetic disorders, traumatic brain disorders, and other neurocognitive disorders that affect learning and development.
Fellows work closely with children and families during their inpatient evaluations for epilepsy surgery candidacy and have the opportunity to observe and participate in surgical procedures (e.g., language mapping, awake craniotomy). There are research opportunities available in epilepsy for interested fellows. Trainees will participate in didactics, including neuropsychology grand rounds, case conference, neurology, and neuro-oncology and psychology grand rounds and will be involved in the training of undergraduate and graduate level neuropsychology students and APA interns.
