The Division of Psychology is home to clinical and research psychologists and has an APA-accredited clinical psychology internship and an APPIC-approved postdoctoral fellowship program.

We currently serve a large and growing range of child referrals involving pediatric neurology and neurosurgery, oncology and other pediatric specialty clinics, rehabilitation cases including children with traumatic brain injuries, as well as youth with a broad range of neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. There are excellent departmental resources to facilitate efficient service delivery, including psychometrist, scheduling, and other administrative staff support.

There are multiple opportunities for trainee supervision at practicum, predoctoral, and postdoctoral levels. We also have an environment that is rich with research opportunities, both investigator-initiated and in collaboration with other colleagues in the Department and throughout VUMC.
Qualified applicants should have specialty training, education, and clinical experience in pediatric neuropsychology. Preference will be given to applicants who have completed a postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology, have an academic record of teaching and research in the field, and are interested in collaboratively expanding training programs.
