The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Residency in Clinical Neuropsychology is a two-year specialty training program which includes didactic, clinical, and research activities. The program is accredited by APA as a Residency in the Specialty of Clinical Neuropsychology. The program conforms to the Houston Conference Guidelines for Training in Clinical Neuropsychology. It is also a member of APPIC. The program currently has four full-time resident positions. Two Residents are funded by OU Medical Center and two by the VA Medical Center. The faculty includes ​7 full-time neuropsychologists. ​T​hree of the 7 neuropsychologists are Board Certified in Clinical Neuropsychology.

We have 3 positions in the Residency in Neuropsychology with an adult emphasis. We will be recruiting 2 positions in Adult for the 2018 Academic year. We will be recruiting for 1 adult position with an emphasis in geropsychology. Typically, residents complete 1 year in the OUHSC Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Department and 1 year at the VA. The APPCN match number for the adult positions is 9502. 

We have 1 Residency in Neuropsychology position funded through the VA with an emphasis in geropsychology. The resident in this position completes both years at the VA, but spends two 6 week rotations in the OUHSC Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.  The APPCN match number for the adult position with an emphasis in geropsychology is 9501.

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.


Diversity Statement

Diversity, equity and inclusion are critical to the healthcare systems and training programs at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) and the OKC VA. 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.
