Rush NeuroBehavioral Center (RNBC) in Skokie, IL as part of Rush University Medical Center (RUMC) is offering full-time advanced training in neuropsychological assessment for one postdoctoral trainee. This is a 24-month fellowship from August 2020 through August 2022 with a stipend and hospital benefits. Start dates are flexible.

The RNBC fellowship involves comprehensive assessment of children, adolescents and young adults with developmental, attention, learning, autism spectrum, behavioral and/or psychiatric disorders. There are also opportunities to work with a medically-diverse population that includes neuropsychological assessments of patients with mild traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, hydrocephalus, chromosomal disorders, mitochondrial disorders and other neurological sequelae. The evaluation battery typically includes assessment related to intellectual functioning, academic achievement, various aspects of attention, memory, executive functioning, receptive and expressive language, and emotional and behavioral functioning. Fellows also obtain training in how to interface and collaborate with school systems, including conducting school observations and attending IEP meetings. Prior neuropsychological testing and clinical experience with children and families is required. Candidates must possess excellent clinical and written communication skills.

RNBC has a large training program for advanced practicum students who have an interest in neuropsychological assessment. The fellow will help supervisors with teaching standardized administration, scoring of assessments, interpretation of data and integration of findings. There are weekly didactic seminars, Neuropsychology Case Conferences, Neurology Grand Rounds, Epilepsy Rounds, Neuropsychology Journal Club at RUMC and staff meetings that fellows are encouraged to attend. There is also the option of testing as part of a multi-disciplinary team, which includes working with our speech and language pathologist and developmental pediatrician. In addition to neuropsychological testing, the fellow will have the opportunity to participate in a concussion clinic as well as co-lead social skills groups.
