Other Comments

Payne Whitney Manhattan offers advanced externship training in neuropsychological assessment of children, adolescents, and adults in an outpatient psychiatric setting. The trainees’ core experience will be to learn about neurodevelopment and brain-behavior functioning in individuals across the lifespan. The patient population presents with a wide variety of functional impairments due to psychiatric and/or neurologic conditions. Trainees will be supervised by clinical neuropsychologists who have a specific interest in providing treatment recommendations and intervention strategies based on the results of the neuropsychological assessment. The trainees will have the opportunity to attend Neurology, Neuroradiology, and Neurosurgery Rounds, Psychiatry Grand Rounds, and clinical case conferences.
