The first year of the fellowship is focused primarily on clinical assessment working towards autonomous practice and licensure with the College of Psychologist of Ontario. These assessment activities also contribute to the clinical research mission for Neuropsychology in the Krembil Brain Institute. In the second year and once fully licensed, fellows will be supported in dedicating more of their time to primary research activities. This may include collaborating with faculty on ongoing research projects (focusing on epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, neurosurgical outcomes, fMRI, language, memory), or initiating a novel prospective or retrospective research project. There are also teaching opportunities working with trainees completing practica or internship placements in the clinic.
The fellow will be affiliated primarily with the Epilepsy Surgery program, where neuropsychology is part of a dynamic interprofessional team and involved in clinical assessment, consultation, and program development and evaluation in one of the leading-edge neurosurgical programs in Canada. In addition, there will be an opportunity to see a wider array of patients and presenting problems from other neurological and neurosurgical programs within UHN. Supervision is provided by four staff Neuropsychologists in the clinic.
- PhD degree within the past 2 years in Psychology
