Provide description of Externship:  The externship is an opportunity to gain experience in neuropsychological assessment, as well as psychotherapy (optional).  The training experience provides an introduction to the purposes and uses of neuropsychological evaluation.  A year-long neuroscience course provides a framework for conceptualization of cognitive impairments.  Both inpatient and outpatient populations are served.  Students receive training in neuropsychological assessment that includes administration, scoring, interpretation, and report writing.  In addition, didactic seminars and lectures attended with the interns and post doctoral fellow are an integral part of the training experience.
