Description of Externship:

Selected externs will learn to administer, score,and interpret neuropsychological test batteries in toddlers, children, adolescents, and young adults (age range ~ 2 - 22 years) undergoing outpatient and inpatient work-ups for a wide range of neurological, medical and neurodevelopmental conditions. Experiences occur within the NYU Langone Hospital - Brooklyn located in Sunset Park. Some outpatient adult evaluation opportunities are available for interested pediatric externs; these occur at the Medical Arts Pavilion in Bay Ridge. Patients are from extremely diverse ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

 

Externs will attend case conferences and various didactic experiences at the NYU Langone Manhattan campus. The trip between campuses on the free NYULMC ferry takes approximately 30 minutes. Supervision of neuropsychology trainees in the pediatric track on the NYU Langone-Brooklyn campus is provided by Gianna Locascio, PsyD, ABPP. For additional questions regarding the Brooklyn campus pediatric training experience, contact Dr. Locascio (gianna.locascio@nyulangone.org).


Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and CV (including list of psychological/neuropsychological tests that have been administered) to the APA Externship portal. Two letters of recommendation can be emailed directly to Dr. Morrison from the writer or uploaded to the portal.  Be sure to note that you are applying for the Pediatric Brooklyn track. Applicants may apply to multiple NYU Langone Department of Neurology tracks (adult/pediatric Manhattan, Combined, and/or Brooklyn campuses) simultaneously.
