The Division of Rehabilitation Psychology in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Ohio State University is seeking to hire a Neuropsychologist with interest and experience in the assessment of patients with acquired disabilities from neurological and musculoskeletal injuries or medical conditions. Duties will entail working with a team of rehabilitation psychologists and neuropsychologists. Outpatient neuropsychological assessments are primarily for rehabilitation populations (e.g., stroke, mild to severe TBI and other forms of acquired brain injury) with strong emphasis on recommendations for return to work and ongoing treatment needs. While primary duties would include outpatient neuropsychological assessment, if there is an interest in outpatient psychotherapy/treatment this can be accommodated. The faculty rank will be in accordance with the candidate’s qualifications. We offer highly competitive pay, malpractice insurance and a great benefits package which includes a yearly CME fund. We are also a Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program Qualified Employer!
The Division of Rehabilitation Psychology currently includes 12 faculty members. Three faculty members focus the majority of their time on research, while eight provide inpatient and outpatient services to specialized programs in stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, general rehabilitation, chronic pain, cancer, burn and neuromodulation. Seven of the Division’s psychologists have achieved board certification from the American Board of Professional Psychology in the area of Rehabilitation Psychology and 2 are board certified in Clinical Neuropsychology. Faculty participates in training of Post-Doctoral Fellows in the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology, as well as Residents in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Ohio State’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) has been an industry leader for more than 50 years.
