Residency in Clinical Neuropsychology

The OUHSC Residency in Clinical Neuropsychology is a two-year specialty training program which includes didactic, clinical, and research activities. The program conforms to the Houston Conference Guidelines for Training in Clinical Neuropsychology. It is also a member of APPIC. The program currently has two full-time resident positions that are funded by OU Health. The faculty includes 7 full-time neuropsychologists. Five of the 7 neuropsychologists are Board Certified in Clinical Neuropsychology.

We have 2 positions in the Residency in Neuropsychology with an adult emphasis. We will be recruiting for one (1) position for  the 2025 Academic year. 

The Residency in Neuropsychology is one of the oldest and most established training programs in the country. Our first Resident graduated in 1979. Approximately 80% of the graduates of this program have gone on to achieve diplomate status from the American Board of Professional Psychology. Residents are provided with exposure to training opportunities within a vast patient population and settings. In addition, the program feels it necessary to focus on belonging and inclusion within clinical, research, didactic, and supervisory experiences within the residency, to ensure a greater appreciation and understanding of patients with cultural differences then that of the provider.
