Neuropsychology Practicum-Externship Training Program

The Division of Neuropsychology in the Neurosurgery Department at Scott & White Healthcare is offering practicum and externship opportunities to psychology graduate students with an interest in Neuropsychology and neuropsychological/psychological assessment. Selected applicants will learn to administer, score and interpret neuropsychological and psychological test protocols through our adult outpatient clinic.

Our Division is one of very few neuropsychology services in the Central Texas region, and our population’s demographics are quite diverse. There will be opportunities to observe and develop experience in multiple neurological disorders, such as dementia, movement disorders, epilepsy and traumatic brain injuries, among others. Practicum students and externs may also have the opportunity to attend various didactic experiences in the Neurosciences Institute. There is also an option for gaining research experience in ongoing investigations and developing individual projects to meet requirements for master’s degree and/or doctoral dissertation research.
