Other Comments

Although the primary testing site is an outpatient office, we are strongly affiliated with multiple area hospitals. Students will be able to obtain a Winthrop University Hospital ID badge and attend hospital based didactics, procedures (fMRI, wada, brain mapping), and assist with inpatient neuropsychological consuslts.
