Neuropsychology - Post-Doctoral Fellowship
Faculty/Clinical Faculty | Medical College - Main Campus | Neuropsychology

The Neuropsychology Service at Rush University Medical Center has one postdoctoral fellowship opening for the 2020 – 2022 training cycle. This program participates in the ABCN match process. The fellowship is a joint position between the Neuropsychology section of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (60%) and the Road Home Program for Veterans and Their Families at Rush (40%). The fellow in this joint track typically spends Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday in the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences section and Thursday and Friday in the Road Home Program. Throughout the fellowship, the fellow is mentored in neuropsychology by Drs. Christopher Grote, Suzanne Musil, and Joyce Tam in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and by Dr. Eileen Martin in the Road Home Program.

A great strength of working at Rush is the variety of cases seen, which includes epilepsy (including non-epileptic seizures), dementia, autoimmune, psychiatric and medical cases among patients of widely varying ages and backgrounds.  This continues over two years.  Overall, clinical work typically will occupy about half to two-thirds of your time, with supervision, didactics, intervention, and research taking up the balance.
