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 6 full-time neuropsychologists. Two of the 6 neuropsychologists are Board Certified in Clinical Neuropsychology.
We have 2 positions in the Residency in Neuropsychology with an adult emphasis. We will no longer be recruiting for the 2023 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.

The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences currently has three APA accredited training programs: Predoctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology, Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology and a Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Neuropsychology. These programs were accredited as a Consortium between the OUHSC and Oklahoma City VA.
Beginning in the 2022-2023 training year, there will no longer be a consortium training relationship with the OKC VA. The three training programs will continue to be sponsored under a single institution (i.e. OUHSC). During this application period, APA requires that we list our accreditation status as unaccredited. However; the psychology training programs at OUHSC have continuously been APA accredited since 1964 (Internship) and 2002 (Clinical and Clinical Neuropsychology Residencies) and we do not anticipate any disruption in accreditation as we make this transition. We have submitted our intent to apply for full accreditation and all program self-studies to APA Committee on Accreditation; They have been approved and we are awaiting assignment of an accreditation site-visit date and subsequent site visit. We anticipate having a site visit in the third quarter of 2022 or first quarter of 2023 with no break in accreditation status for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are critical to the healthcare systems and training programs at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) Therefore, we strive to create a learning community where residents and faculty of all backgrounds feel welcome and supported.
Residents are provided with exposure to training opportunities within a diverse patient population and settings. The residency emphasizes cultural diversity in all aspects of the training program. In addition to the focus on diversity within clinical, research, didactic, and supervisory experiences within the residency, a Cultural Diversity Committee offers additional input into this crucial area of training. Opportunities exist for trainees to participate on this committee with faculty, which allows for direct input on the goals of diversity-informed programming, didactics and other training experiences that may be offered during the year.
