Training Plan and Evaluation Procedures

The majority of didactic, research, and clinical activities are within the Clinical Neuropsychology specialty area. The Resident, working with a faculty supervisor, develops a Training Plan within the first month of the residency. As the Neuropsychology Training Director, Dr. Linck must approve this plan. The sections of the Training Plan correspond to the list of ​competencies for the program. Within each ​competency l, the track-specific activities are delineated. The Resident's Training Plan (RTP) specifies clinical activities for the year, the sites where these will take place, and the duration of training at each site. Specialty track-specific didactics, including seminars, conferences and directed readings, are listed. The topic area and a timeline for the Resident's research are also specified.
